Hendersonville Chorale presents spring concert Sunday

Hendersonville Chorale will present its Spring Concert, JAZZ!, at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 29, at First United Methodist Church.

The program features a mix of mostly jazz music—from old favorites like “When the Saints Go Marching In,” to the sometimes jazzy, sometimes funky, but never irreverent Nadoros Jazz Mass by Chilcott. Director Michael S. Brannon promises this concert will “put a smile on your face and a little ‘tap’ in your foot.” The Chorale’s piano accompanist, Rebecca Brake, will be joined by guest musicians Jason DeCristofaro (drum) and Matthew Waid (string bass).
Now in its 44th concert season, the Hendersonville Chorale is the oldest continually performing choral group in Henderson County. Approximately 70 non-auditioned singers with a wide range in age and skill levels currently lend their voices to the Chorale, and all share the love of singing.
In addition to its own annual fall and spring concerts, the Chorale frequently performs at the invitation of other area organizations. In recent years, their community involvement has included appearances at Biltmore Estate, Asheville Tourist games, the Henderson County Heritage Museum’s Veterans Hall for Memorial Day, and the Apple Festival. Last May, Chorale members joined the Asheville Symphony Chorus and the Asheville Choral Society in a musical venture that took them to Prague and Brno in the Czech Republic, and on to Vienna and Salzburg, Austria.
Concert tickets are available at the Henderson County Visitor’s Center, at the door, and online at HendersonvilleCh Cost is $22. For more information about the concert or about how to become a Chorale member, visit
