The Wilmington Choral society has been providing the Lower Cape Fear region with outstanding choral performances. Founded in 1950, the group is dedicated to high performance standards in presenting the masterworks of choral literature, as well as a wide variety of contemporary music.
Known for a time as the Wilmington Oratorio Society, and having a succession of distinguished conductors, the group has continuously attracted singers from Wilmington and surrounding counties. As a true community effort, the Wilmington Choral Society's support is derived from membership dues, corporate and individual donations and concert ticket sales. Representing a diversity in age, professions, and geographic distribution, the Wilmington Choral Society presents up to four concerts annually, thus establishing itself as an integral part of Wilmington's cultural community.
