Because of the threat of the corona virus, we have decided to cancel this performance. We have scheduled a Christmas concert to be held on December 9th, so set that date aside and visit this site later in the spring for details!

Help the chorale continue its mission to bring great choral music to the Wlmington community!


A German Requiem

May 17th - 4:00pm

The central work of Johannes Brahms’ life, this requiem established Brahms as a composer of major stature and linked two of the most important spheres of his musical life, the vocal and the symphonic.


We will welcome back Shannon Kessler Dooley, a marvelous soprano who has performed with the chorale several times. In addition, we will also welcome the return of John Dooley, whose baritone voice has charmed you in the past.


The chorale will be accompanied by a 20-piece chamber orchestra. This glorious performance promises to be a concert you will not want to miss!





The Society will also collect donations to Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard food bank.





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.

Our scholarship goes to a high school senior who expects to continue their vocal experience in college or university. You can help!

Many thanks to  The Arts Council of Wilmington and NHC, and Rhonda Bellamy, Executive Director, for the award of a Grassroots grant of $1500 to support performances in the Wilson Center.  

This project was supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
