Spring, 2019

Thank you for visiting the website of the Opus Chorale! We hope you will enjoy getting to know a little bit more about the Opus Chorale and our work. As we celebrate our 15th season, we invite you to join with us in helping to spread the word about our work.  If you have any questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at opuswv@gmail.com.

As we begin another season, the theme for our concert on May 12th at 3:oopm is entitled, “Infinity-Old is New Again.” In this concert we will be singing literature based on ancient texts but set to music by modern composers. Since the symbol for infinity is a ‘figure eight (8), all of the repertoire will be SATB divisi or double SATB choir.

We are fortunate to use Christ Church United Methodist in Charleston, WV  as our base for all our concerts and rehearsals. The Centrum (sanctuary) has an amazing acoustic as well as having extreme flexibility in layout and set-up. During this concert, we will use this wonderful space to its fullest potential by not only singing from the choir loft, but from the aisles and from 2 opposing balconies.

Also, the Opus Chorale has been invited to London, England in June 2020 to sing in a choral festival being held in Cadogan Hall, the home of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The festival is called, “Vox Anima London” The guest composer-in-residence for this festival is our good friend, Norwegian composer, Kim Andre Arnesen. This concert will be the start of our first British concert tour! Needless to say, we are very excited and humbled by this invitation! We will share more details as our plans develop over the next year.

The Opus Chorale is a choral group of only 24 singers and there are no openings for this spring season.  However, if you would like to be considered as a future singer and would like to be added to our waiting list for possible involvement in the future, please send me an email at the address shown below.  I will contact you so we can set up an audition.

Thank you for your interest in the Opus Chorale of West Virginia! We hope to see you at our holiday concert on December 15th!
