Our 29th Season

One of the many joys of working with the talented and enthusiastic singers of the Lexington Chamber Chorale is planning concert programs. We have presented over 95 concerts and performed over 500 pieces to date. Our concerts are primarily theme-based and this has served us well for the past 28 years because of the talent and flexibility of our singers and because our audience base is supportive of bold and innovative programs. Our 29th season, themed “Sing Community,” is no exception.

Program Note: Out of growing concern related to COVID-19, The Lexington Chamber Chorale is postponing the April concert, Sing Community, International Collaboration, with guest Anders Åstrand, percussionist, from Stockholm. The concert will take place in the fall at a date to be determined.

Sing Community

Sing Community, Sing Peace
Saturday, October 19, 7:30 p.m.
With Paul Laurence Dunbar High School Chamber Choir, Tiffany Marsh, Director and Second Presbyterian Church Covenant Choir, Gary L. Anderson, Director

Choral singing brings people together. No matter your mission, choirs promote collaboration and the creation of community. This opening concert unites three outstanding groups to bring our community together.

Sing Community, Songs of Celebration and Joy
Sunday, December 1, 5:00 p.m.

Celebratory music of the season! We begin with music and dialogue from Medieval England, followed by fresh arrangements of international carols, music celebrating Hanukkah, a few recently composed works—and an audience sing-along. The evening concludes with a reception of food and drink and a few surprises.

Sing Community, Celebrating Black History Month
Sunday, February 23, 5:00 p.m.
Music by African American composers, featuring Gospel Mass by Robert Ray

The Chorale devotes an entire concert to music of black composers for the first time, performing a wealth of rarely performed motets and anthems written by black composers. In many cases, these are the same composers who are better-known for their spirituals and gospel pieces.

Sing Community, International Collaboration
[This performance has been postponed due to concerns about COVID-19. The concert will take place in the fall at a date to be determined.]
With guest Anders Åstrand, percussionist and composer, Stockholm, Sweden

A mesmerizing evening of Scandinavian choral music featuring guest composer and musician Anders Åstrand. He will use improvisation to musically connect the pieces in an hour of uninterrupted music. Joining us for the third time, Åstrand is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
