A Hendersonville donor has made a $6,000 contribution for the purchase of new risers for the Carolina Concert Choir, Judy Meinzer, president of the concert choir, announced on Thursday.


Eleanora Meloun presented the check to Larry Doebler, a retired professor who is artistic director and conductor for the choir.

"We are deeply grateful to Eleanora Meloun for her generous donation," Meinzer said in a news release. "It is important for our choir to have safe, reliable equipment as our organization continues to grow."
The Choir, which recently announced its new season and a redesigned logo, will perform Christmas concert and spring concert. The Christmas concert will feature Bach's Magnificat with orchestra, while the spring concert will feature Music's reflection of the Civil War with poetry by Walt Whitman.
The performances will be held in the Bo Thomas Auditorium on the campus of Blue Ridge Community College. For information about the Choir, or to order tickets, visit carolinaconcertchoir.org.
Formerly the Carolina Chamber Singers, the Carolina Concert Choir began in 1979 as a madrigal group of 10 to 12 voices directed by Dr. Robert Barrow, retired head of the Music Department at Williams College in Williamstown, Mass.
