This year, the chorale will perform grand and inspiring pieces like:

"Here We Come A-Caroling" by Josh Sparkman

"Jesus Child" by John Rutter

"Carol of the Bells" by Leontovich/ Wilhousky

"We Wish You a Merry Christmas" by Jonathan Willcocks, and more.

The chorale is under the Artistic Direction of Arleen Widerman, a life-long Burlington native and a Music Education alumnus of Elon University. The choir will be accompanied by pianist Nancy McMillan, a Mebane native and a Music degree holder from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

The Alamance Chorale was founded in 1974, to share quality sacred and secular music with our community. We perform three concerts each year: at Christmas, a fund-raising dinner show in March with various themes and styles of music, and a spring concert in May. The Christmas and spring concerts are free. Please join us Tuesday, December 10th for an inspiring evening that will enrich your Christmas season!
