The Chorale, founded in 1981 by Artistic Director and Conductor Linda L. Tedford, is a nationally recognized adult chamber ensemble of 36 auditioned singers.

Join us in a concert of timeless music that will stir your heart, make you smile, and maybe even inspire you to get up and dance!

Featuring a mix of music from today’s finest composers to classics from the American Songbook (Gershwin, Berlin, Ellington), gospel hymns and spirituals. Also featuring Dancing on the Edges of Time (Carnahan), The Seal Lullaby (Whitacre), No Mirrors in My Nana’s House (Ysaye Barnwell, Lobet den Herrn (Bach), and Evening Prayer (Gjeilo).

Guest artist Dr. Todd Goranson will accompany the Chorale on saxophone. In addition, Dr. Goranson will perform a pre-concert recital 15 minutes before each performance.

Audience members are invited to attend receptions immediately following both performances, with an opportunity to meet Conductor Linda L. Tedford and the Chorale singers.
