Our 37th Season begins on December 13!

The Keene Chorale presents Songs of the Season December 13The Keene Chorale winter concert is a much loved holiday tradition in the Monadnock area. This year’s offering, Songs of the Season, will kick off the holidays as we perform a collection of carols by John Rutter, works by Hector Berlioz, Richard Smith, Daniel Johann Grimm, J. S. Bach, César Franck, and John Jacob Niles.

Artistic Director William C. Davis will direct the Chorale, returning Tenor soloist Kirk Bobkowski, and The Keene Chorale Orchestra. Continuing the Chorale tradition at Christmas, Mr. Davis will lead the audience in a carol sing at the end of the program.

The concert will take place On Sunday December 13, 2015 at St. Bernard Church, 185 Main Street, Keene, NH, at 2:00 PM.

The 2015-2016 season is the Chorale’s 37th. Begun in 1979 with a handful of choristers, it has grown to an eighty-voice chorus composed of singers of all ages and from many walks of life across Keene and the Monadnock region, known for the range and quality of its sound. Mr. Davis has led the Chorale since 2010, becoming its fourth permanent Director in 2012.
