Since its inception, the Choral Society of Durham has developed a reputation for excellence in performing significant choral works with professional orchestras and regionally and nationally known soloists. In a typical year, we present a holiday concert in December, a winter concert in February or March, and a spring concert in May. The group is comprised of approximately 140 singers, 25-35 of whom also sing in our Chamber Choir, which rehearses separately.
In January 2020, we made a major strategic commitment to expand our reach by diversifying our music repertoire, collaborators, venues and recruitment efforts. Artistic Director Rodney Wynkoop is deeply passionate about and committed to building and diversifying both our community and choral music repertoire. This is reflected in our recent repertoire and collaborations with other local groups. In recent seasons, our collaborators included NC Central University Choir, Raleigh Boychoir, the Durham Medical Orchestra, Durham Children’s Choir and DPS High School Choirs.
