The Wilmington Choral Society, founded in 1950 as the Wilmington Oratorio Society, is dedicated to high performance standards in presenting master works of choral literature, as well as a variety of contemporary selections. We have established ourselves as an integral part of the area’s cultural community, as well as community outreach in the form of annual music scholarships and donations to Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard food bank. In the past two years, the Society has grown from 50 to 108 voices hailing from New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick Counties.
Our Mission Statement:
The Wilmington Choral Society is dedicated to the goals of engaging, educating and supporting the greater Cape Fear Community through the vehicle of music. We strive to further the appreciation and love of choral music and to financially support worthwhile charities though the presentation of traditional masterworks and contemporary music.
