This concert is sponsored by Kate Rugani and Sarah McFather, in memory of their mother, Joan U. McFather,
and will be conducted by Scott Martin.


We are delighted to share that Tim Powell, writer of the piece Consider The Lilies, An Appalachian Requiem, will be addressing the audience. Also, in addition to the sixty-member choral group, a soloist, and more than 15 talented instrumentalists will be accompanying our moving program.


The Cherokee Chorale is committed to moving forward with performing beautiful music for the benefit of the community, but we need your help to do so. In-person ticket sales usually help off-set the costs of our performances. Our December 2020 concert was a gift to the community, but we're asking you to please help support this concert by purchasing $10 pay-per-view access (a processing fee may apply) to enjoy this beautiful concert safely in your home. We are truly excited to bring you this virtual concert!
