Cahaba Chamber Chorale performs their Winter Concert, Solstice, that will take each listener on a journey from the dark night of the soul to light eternal (lux aeterna). Audience members will be surrounded by ethereal choral singing that will soothe and uplift even the most restless soul. Music will range from the renaissance to contemporary choral literature and familiar holiday carols.
The Cahaba Chamber Chorale will host two high school choirs as part of our education initiative and advocacy for the choral arts. Vestavia Hills High School Honor Choir conducted by Taylor Stricklin and Indian Springs High School Concert Choir conducted by Dr. Lee Wright will join in a collaborative concert with the Cahaba Chamber Chorale. The featured music will be winter and holiday themed and will highlight the exceptional talents of these three groups during the most wonderful time of the year.

Program: Spring is a most joyous time of the year when all things are made new. The image of spring has been used as a metaphor for new love and the budding of relationships. Poets and playwrights have long celebrated this season with texts that enliven the senses and speak to the heart. The Cahaba Chamber Chorale, in their Spring Concert, MADRIGALS, CHANSONS & OTHER LOVE SONGS, will present music that engages the imagination as to the delights of spring and love. This concert will feature the music of lauded American composer Morten Johannes Lauridsen. The chorale will perform several of his best-known works including Les Chansons des Roses and Six “Fire Songs” on Italian Renaissance Poems.
The Cahaba Chamber Chorale is an organization that endeavors to connect, celebrate, and unify our community as we sing together and highlight the experiences that all people share. Formed to fulfill a mission, it is our goal to elevate Alabama's rich tradition of choral music and the choral art for a higher purpose, showcasing the diverse breadth of talent in our region.
