Over 150 groups have commissioned him to write original works for them. An original hymn, “Come to the Water,” appears in the hymnal, Celebrating Grace.

About the Triangle Brass Band:

The Triangle Brass Band was formed in 1986 as a joint venture of the A.J. Fletcher Foundation and Capitol Broadcasting Company of Raleigh, NC, and was known as the WRAL British Brass Band in its early years.  The band found immediate success in competition, winning either First or Second place at the North American Brass Band Association’s (NABBA) annual Championships in 1987, 88, 89, 90 and 92.  TBB was the 3rd Section Champion at the 2018 NABBA Championships, and runner-up in 2019.

Using the traditional British Brass instrumentation of Cornets, Flugelhorn, Tenor Horns, Baritones, Euphoniums, Trombones, Tubas and Percussion, this all brass and percussion group is extremely versatile, performing music from virtually all genres, from classical transcriptions, to pop and jazz, movie and Broadway music, and, of course, original brass band literature.  Members of the ensemble come from all walks of life, including lawyers, educators, IT professionals and retirees, to name a few.  Continuing in the long-standing brass band tradition of amateur music making, players volunteer their time and talents to this unique type of band, and play just for the love of it.

The Band has performed at many important conferences and festivals, such as the Eastern Music Festival, the Great American Brass Band Festival, the New York Brass Conference, the International Tuba Euphonium Conference, the NC Music Educators Association Conference, and has made many appearances at the North American Brass Band Association’s annual Championships.  With regular concerts in the Raleigh, Durham, and Cary areas, the Triangle Brass Band has spent over 30 years providing brass band music to its community and spreading awareness about the art of brass banding.

With the dizzying sound of four trumpets swirling over the joyous sounds below them and the timpani throbbing in support, the choir fairly launches themselves off the floor in exhilarating vocal lines celebrating Christ’s birth. Four soloists reflect on the wondrous knowledge that we have been given much more than we could ever deserve. Continuing the delight of the season with a shift away from the sacred, the concert continues with the buoyant sounds of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite and some of the most meaningful songs from holiday movies, both in well-crafted choral arrangements.

After the break, we’ll sing the iconic and oh-so-beautiful “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen. Join us for the festivities and feel the joy of singing together. Don your Santa hat, tinsel, and ugly holiday sweater. Come alone or with family, friends, neighbors, and/or co-workers. Everyone is welcome!

For this season finale, we suggest getting your tickets in advance – we have sold out in previous years. Practice the songs ahead of time (optional!) and come ready to have some holiday FUN!

Think you are a bad singer? Forget about it – we welcome everybody at PopUp Chorus! New to PopUp Chorus? Want to know more? Is it for you?

Do you like to sing? Do you sing in the shower, in your car, or along to the radio? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you belong in PopUp Chorus!

PopUp Chorus is the only chorus where you can show up when you want and skip it when you’re too busy. No audition, no ongoing commitment. Just show up and sing with an ad hoc bunch of other lovely, excellent people. Together, we form a chorus and are never the same group twice.

At each event, singers arrive and “learn” two or three pre-announced familiar songs, guided by our funny, skilled and encouraging conductor, Allan Friedman. When each song is ready (we embrace imperfection!) we do a final sing-through performance and applaud ourselves heartily! It’s simple and could not be more fun.

Find out more about our events by joining our mailing list, following us on Twitter, or join our Facebook group. Check out our WEBSITE to learn more and see our past videos: http://popupchorus.org/

Admission: $15 for adults and $8 for students (ticket fee and tax are additional). Student tickets must be purchased in person at the Box Office with appropriate ID. Drinks available from the bar. Free parking in the multi-story parking deck adjacent to The ArtsCenter.

“VAE is made up of some of the finest voices in the Triangle. They are chosen by Wynkoop based on ability, musicality, and the best possible blend of vocal qualities. His rehearsals are always focused and disciplined, a great pleasure, and often fun. Concerts of superior choral quality such as what was experienced in Duke Chapel this evening are the consequence of all of this. How fortunate we are!” – Ken Hoover, CVNC

Rutter Requiem & Vierne Mass Choral Society of Durham Winter Concert 2020 @ Duke Chapel
Feb 7 @ 8:00 pm

John Rutter’s music has been a significant part of the world’s choral music for decades, charming the listener with its simple elegance and endearing charm. Few, if any, contemporary composers have written so many choral pieces, or have had their works more frequently performed by thousands and thousands of different choirs. As he turns 75, the Choral Society pays tribute to Rutter’s remarkable compositional career, performing one of his most gripping and dramatic works, his Requiem. French composer Louis Vierne, who was the principal organist at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris for 37 years despite being legally blind from an early age, wrote his beloved Solemn Mass for 2 Organs and Choir while still serving as assistant organist to Charles-Marie Widor at church of St. Sulpice in Paris. We honor his life and music on the occasion of his 150th birthday, even as we continue to grieve the momentous damage done to Notre Dame Cathedral by the rampaging fires this past spring.

Chanticleer Faith of Our Fathers @ Baldwin Auditorium
Mar 6 @ 8:00 pm

Now in its 41st year, Chanticleer remains at the vanguard of choral ensemble excellence in America. Founded by a musicology student who wanted to perform the music he was studying, Chanticleer has grown into a twelve-member group adept with ancient masters and modern commissions. Along the way the ensemble has received several major music prizes, including two GRAMMY awards and Ensemble of the Year from Musical America, all while continuing in Billboard’s Top 10 best-selling classical artists.

At Duke Performances Chanticleer brings a five-part program of sacred music, Faith of Our Fathers. The repertoire spans from Hildegard’s “O virtu sapientiae” in the 12th century, to English and American works, featuring highlights of the English renaissance and colonial American traditions, complemented by modern tributes to those styles. The choir stops briefly in the Spanish New World before concluding with Chanticleer favorites.

The Tallis Scholars Rose without Thorn @ Baldwin Auditorium
Apr 22 @ 8:00 pm

The Tallis Scholars are undoubtedly the elder statesmen among Renaissance sacred music choirs throughout the world. Founded in 1973, the ensemble’s name is synonymous with early music excellence, which is why The Washington Post calls its performances of the repertoire “authoritative.” Its impressive discography has garnered several major music awards, including Gramophone’s Recording of the Year and three Early Music awards from the same magazine.

At the acoustically pristine Baldwin Auditorium, the Tallis Scholars celebrate English and Franco-Flemish music of the 16th century, with a particular devotion to the “rose without thorn,” the Virgin Mary. Music by Taverner, Byrd, and Fawkyner forms the first half, after which the ensemble jumps to the continent with Josquin and Gombert, punctuated by Arvo Pärt’s brief Da pacem.

Program

Vaughan Williams Dona Nobis Pacem & Britten Ballad of Heroes Choral Society of Durham Spring Concert 2020 @ Duke Chapel
May 2 @ 8:00 pm

Vaughan Williams’ haunting and dramatic cantata “Dona nobis pacem” is an impassioned and eloquent plea for peace, written in 1936 as horrific memories of World War I were being echoed in the growing fears of a second such war. Words from the traditional mass are interwoven with graphic and gripping images from Walt Whitman’s Civil War-era poetry as well as texts from the Bible and even a political speech made in the House of Commons. The Choral Society performed this timeless musical masterpiece in Carnegie Hall in 2006 and in Vienna in 2009, and now again in 2020, the year of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. Also on the program is Britten’s little-known 1939 “Ballad of Heroes,” a setting of texts by Auden and Randall Swinger, is described as a “passionate outburst against the waste and horror of war.”
