The Charlotte Chorale announces its return to the Charlotte Performing Arts Center at 701 Carmalita St. in Punta Gorda for all concerts in their 2022-2023 season. The chorale is thrilled to be performing at this premier venue once again, after having experienced limited availability of concert venues for the past two concert seasons. Under the continued and outstanding leadership of Dr. William B. Dederer, artistic director, the chorale again will present another season of high-quality and affordable performances.
The three-concert choral series will commence with the highly anticipated Christmas concert, “Treasured Sounds of Christmas” along with the Second Annual Silent Auction, on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 4pm. The concert will include beloved and beautiful Christmas and holiday music from past and recent years. The Silent Auction will offer opportunities to bid on local and state-wide recreational activities, local dining gift certificates, personal services and various gift baskets.
The next concert, “Voices of Spirit” will be performed on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2023. This concert will be a celebration of music inspired by the universality of mankind’s relationship with creation: awe of creation’s wonders, reverence for its beauty, joy in the mystery and spirit thereof.
The third and final chorale concert, “Reflections” will take place on Saturday, April 15, 2023. This concert will celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Chorale being under the direction of Dr. William Dederer, and will feature some of his favorite compositions.
Additionally, the Charlotte Chorale will host a special concert appearance of The Dallas Brass, on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2023, at 4 pm.
