the UD chorale in concert

The  UD Chorale is among the most highly regarded college choirs in the Eastern United States. In recent years, the choir has been invited to perform on both regional (Pittsburgh, 2002; Hartford, 2008; and Boston, 2016) and national (Los Angeles, 2005 and Dallas, 2013) conventions of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA). They have also performed at Carnegie Hall in New York and Verizon Hall in Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center for the Arts. In addition to annual regional tours, the Chorale has traveled extensively throughout Europe and Asia.

In addition to a 10-day concert tour of China in 2009, the Chorale has performed to great acclaim throughout Europe, competing in contests in Tolosa, Spain (2010); Debrecen, Hungary (2012); and Tallinn, Estonia (2007). In each case, the choir placed in the top three of every category in which they competed, winning the Grand Prix in Estonia and the runner-up to the Grand Prix in Hungary. They were also the only American university choir to be featured on the 30th International Society for Music Education World Conference in Thessaloniki, Greece in 2012. In the Spring of 2017, the Chorale embarked on a month-long journey overseas to perform Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra in Israel. They then journeyed toward Europe with performances in a festival in Malta and an International Choral Competition in Germany.

The Chorale has released five compact discs, the most recent featuring virtuosic choral music of Eastern Europe, titled The Road to Debrecen, (Now available on iTunes) and more recently Carols by Candlelight.

Chorale members serve as the principal singers of the Delaware Choral Academy, where they are the choir in residence for the annual Summer Symposium held in the South of France. Additionally, they are part of the larger symphonic chorus that performs regularly with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra, most recently in the highly acclaimed performance of the Cherubini Requiem. Other recent appearances include Mahler's Resurrection Symphony, Mozart’s Requiem, Verdi’s Requiem, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
