Concerts to Feature the Music of
Two of America’s Most Beloved Composers

The Delray Beach Chorale’s spring concert will feature the music of two of America’s – and Broadway’s – most honored and beloved composers.  The 60-voice chorale, under the direction of Conductor/Artistic Director Eric Keiper, will perform selections from the works of Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein.  The concerts will take place at the Duncan Theatre in Lake Worth on Friday, April 12th at 7:30 pm, and at the First Presbyterian Church in Delray Beach on Saturday, April 13th, at 3:00 pm.

The April concerts will feature songs from the musicals Company, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Follies, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and selections from Bernstein’s West Side Story and Candide, as well as music from his renowned work Chichester Psalms, which will be performed Hebrew.

Founded 30 years ago by a group of Delray Beach singers, the Chorale has consistently attracted talented amateur and professional vocalists from Fort Lauderdale to Palm Beach.  The group performs with an orchestral ensemble consisting of array of talented instrumentalists, including members of the former Florida Philharmonic.
D30_4786The Delray Beach Chorale’s mission is to promote and encourage the art of singing and to share the experience of great music with the community. Although their initial focus was on the classics of great choral literature, both traditional and contemporary, over the past several years they have broadened their musical scope to include works of 20th century composers, including Rachmaninoff, Copland, and Gershwin.

The Chorale also operates a Music Academy Program, the only one of its kind in the state.  The five young professional musicians selected as Artists-in-Residence perform as soloists with the chorale, act as section leaders, and provide instruction to a select group of talented high school singers who also sing with the chorale. These young professionals will be showcased in the April performance.

Tickets for the Delray Beach Chorale’s Spring Concert are $20 each; $5 for students, and can be purchased on-line at delraybeachchorale.org or by phone at 1-800-984-7282.
