Duke Chorale Returns to The Village Chapel
The Duke University Chorale will perform at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8, in The Village Chapel in Pinehurst.
This will be Rodney Wynkoop's 25th anniversary of bringing this group of students and their presentation of choral music to the Sandhills. The 50 + singers will be accompanied by Mary Hamilton. There will be a $5 admission fee at the front door of the Chapel.
Some of the works to be performed include Stephen Chatman's arrangement of "Dryads' Bells," the folk song "Loch Lomond," arranged by Jonathan Quick, and Samuel Barber's "Anthony O'Daly."
After a 12-minute intermission, the chamber choir will return to sing a few selections: "O Sweet May," by Johannes Brahms, "Remember," by Stephen Chatman (with a nostalgic text by Christina Rossetti), and a favorite of most audiences, "Il est bel et bon," by Passereau.
Joined by the rest of the chorale members, the group will continue with two selections about nightingales, one from Brahms' "Liebeslieder Waltzes" and the second from "Sechs Lieder," by Felix Mendelssohn. Other selections include songs based on several poems.
After the concert at The Village Chapel, the choir will board the bus to the Penick Village, where they will have an evening meal, before singing a short concert and mingling with the guests.
