Joining HCB Sunday, December 8th
The Hendersonville Chorale, now in its 45th season, is the oldest continually performing choral group in Henderson County. Hendersonville Chorale's mission is to provide opportunities to all people who love to sing and share the love of music and the inspiration it provides to Hendersonville and the greater community.
The Chorale's first concert was held in the Hendersonville High School Auditorium on June 8, 1975. Approximately 40 non-auditioned singers with a wide range in age and skill levels currently lend their voices to the Chorale, all of whom share the love of singing. The Chorale is directed by Michael S. Brannon, who is serving as the 13th director since the organization was founded.
In addition to its own annual fall and spring concerts, the Chorale frequently performs at the invitation of other area organizations.
In recent years, their community involvement has included appearances at Biltmore Estate, Asheville Tourist games, the Henderson County Heritage Museum's Veterans Hall for Memorial Day, and the Apple Festival. The Chorale has also been the guest choir with the Brevard Philharmonic and the Hendersonville Community Band. Members of the Chorale joined members of the Asheville Symphony Chorus and the Asheville Choral Society in a musical venture that took them to Prague and Brno in the Czech Republic, and on to Vienna and Salzburg, Austria.
The Hendersonville Chorale is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide and opportunity to all singers to share the joy and inspiration of a wide variety of choral music with the community.
New members are welcomed at the beginning of each concert season. For more information about the Chorale, visit www.HendersonvilleChorale.com
