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.
Our Fall, 2023 concert will be upon us very quickly. Our concert, “In Servitium: From Love to Life” is scheduled for Saturday, October 21, 2023, 7:00pm in the Centrum (sanctuary) of Christ Church United Methodist in downtown Charleston, West Virginia. ‘In Servitium’ translates from the Latin to ‘in service.’ The overarching theme for the concert is ‘in service to the Divine’ and ‘in service to the Divine in every person.” In a day and time when our world is full of anger and hate, it is important to see the sacred in every person as we strive for a brighter, more loving future…’From Love to Life.’
We are excited to welcome a new member to our ranks, Danielle Milam. Danielle has been on the potential member list for quite some time, so we are thrilled she had a successful audition and accepted her spot in the soprano section. Welcome Danielle.
A complete list of our concert repertoire can be found by clicking on the “concert repertoire” tab to the left of this screen.
Concert tickets are $10/person and can be purchased at the door.
This fall, the Opus Chorale was awarded a grant from the Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation. This is the first grant we have received. Thank you, GKVF for your financial assistance!
While you are here, go ahead and mark your calendars for our Spring, 2024 concert on Saturday, April 6, 7:00pm. This concert will feature the amazing and beautiful “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace” by the Welsh composer, Karl Jenkins. Our Artistic Director/Conductor, David Donathan, conducted the West Virginia premiere of this work (the liturgical suite) in 2006 with his church choir at Christ Church United Methodist in Charleston. We are excited to bring you this choral work in its entirety, along with members of the WV Symphony Orchestra and the West Virginia Youth Symphony.
Thank you for your interest in the Opus Chorale! We hope to see you on Saturday, October 21, 2023 for our fall concert.
