Chorus presents free concert Nov. 14

The Haywood Community Chorus will hold its fall concert at 4 p.m. on Nov. 14 at the First United Methodist Church in Waynesville.

The 60-voice chorus has prepared the much-cclaimed “Messa di Gloria” by Giascomo Puccini. Featured Soloists are Herbert Kraus, tenor, and Ed Davis, baritone.

Randall Thompson’s “Testament of Freedom” will also be performed.

The choral director is J. William Stephenson, with Kathryn Stephenson as accompanist.  

The Haywood Community Chorus was founded in 1997 to help preserve an appreciation for the great liturgical music of the past and present. The Haywood Community Chorus is sponsored in part by the Junaluskans and also the Haywood County Arts Council through a Grassroots Grant from the North Carolina Arts Council. Admission is free.
