Special Treat – Choral Society of Durham

The Club departed slightly from the usual order of business for a special program provided by the Choral Society of Durham. The program was organized by Rotarian and Choral member Doug Butler. The program was led by Dr. Rodney Wynkoop, who has served as conductor and artistic director of the Choral Society of Durham since 1986. He is also director of University Choral Music, Director of Chapel Music, and Professor of the Practice of Music at Duke University.

The group present was a small but very talented section of the total Choral. Introductions of each piece by Dr. Wynkoop demonstrated the range of their performance capabilities.  Dr. Wynkoop has served as conductor and artistic director of the Choral Society of Durham since 1986. He is also director of University Choral Music, Director of Chapel Music, and Professor of the Practice of Music at Duke University.

Dr. Wynkoop extended an invitation to Rotarians to attend the Concerts for the Holiday Season, Saturday December 8 and Sunday December 9 at the Duke Chapel for a performance of La Fiesta de la Posada by Dave Brubeck before they sung a short piece of it for the Club.

The Choral Society has a long history in Durham going back to 1949. More information is available on their website including ways to support them. Many thanks to Doug and Dr. Wynkoop for the program.
