Piedmont Chorale Rehearsals
Wallace Hinson, Associate Dean of Fine Arts and Music Department Chair at Piedmont College, will return to the podium for the 2019-20 season to conduct the Piedmont Chorale in rehearsals and performances for the annual Service of Lessons and Carols and the Great Composers Series concert.
Hinson founded the Chorale in 1993 as an opportunity for members of the Piedmont and surrounding communities to provide quality performances of important choral repertoire for the college and the region. During his tenure as conductor, the choir grew from 55 in the first rehearsal in 1993 to more than 100 singers when he stepped away in 2009.
In preparation for the coming season, the Chorale is seeking singers for all voice parts. Rehearsals begin 6 p.m., Monday, August 19 in Nielsen Hall, the temporary home of the Music Department. No audition is required.
Known for their energy and expressive singing, the Chorale regularly performs to large and enthusiastic audiences for the annual Service of Lessons and Carols, and has performed many of the great choral masterworks from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, including Haydn’s The Creation, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 and Mass in C, Requiem and C Minor Mass by Mozart, Brahms’s A German Requiem, the Duruflé Requiem, Carmina Burana and many others.
