For more than two decades, Huntsville’s own auditioned chamber choir — Huntsville Master Chorale — has been delighting audiences with their performances, and after a pandemic-related hiatus, the group is back with a performance scheduled for May 6-7.
The May performance features works from Huntsville Master Chorale competition contest winners from 2020 and 2021.
Catch “I Dream a World” May 6-7
Huntsville Master Chorale presents a traditional concert, which premieres “Cosmic Cycle,” a piece HMC commissioned from local composer Erin Huelskamp Bohn and “Dona Nobis Pacem” by composer Dennis Clements. You can also hear the winning submissions from recent Composition Contests:
- 2020 winner, “Three Songs of Spring” by Timothy Smith.
- 2021 winner, “I Dream a World” by Cole Reyes.
The performance Friday, May 6, will be at Asbury United Methodist Church located at 980 Hughes Road, Madison, AL 35758.
The Saturday, May 7 performance is at Covenant Presbyterian Church, located at 301 Drake Avenue, Huntsville, AL 35801.
What’s next for Huntsville Master Chorale
HMC is also sponsoring a first for Huntsville: a choral festival, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” bringing together 100 voices from the community to sing with Dr. Jason Ferdinand, the internationally known conductor of the local Aeolians at Oakwood University.
Singers will rehearse with Dr. Ferdinand and then present a concert with orchestra for the public June 4 at 5:30PM at Trinity United Methodist Church.
These performances by the HMC will close out the season for the group, which has had to limit live performances amid the coronavirus pandemic. Being able to perform live again has the vocalists and local music lovers ready to hear some good live performances.
“Folks are hungry for live arts performances, and both of these weekends offer exciting choral music and are not ticketed events.”Linda McAllister, founding member, Huntsville Master Chorale
