 Choral Society of Durham Gala
March 23, 2018


You can sign up to receive a Gala invitation.

We couldn’t let all the other non-profits and arts organizations have ALL the fun, so last year we decided to hold our very own CSD Gala. What happened? Everyone had a fabulously fun evening, and we raised enough money through our silent auction and individual donations to fund the full costs for an orchestra for one of our upcoming concerts.  (That’s significant if you haven’t priced the cost of a full orchestra lately.)  

 So, we hope you’ll join us as for our 2018 encore Gala. We’ll be at the new JB Duke Hotel, (which is a Durham must-see, especially if you haven’t been there since it replaced the decrepit Thomas Center). Enjoy a fun evening with excellent food, lively conversation, a little bit of music and the chance to bid on and win great silent auction prizes.   

 All to help CSD continue to offer high-quality performances of choral masterpieces with professional orchestra and soloists, while keeping ticket prices affordable.   

If you attended the Gala last year, watch for your invitation
after the holidays.
If you didn’t, and want to hear more,
please give us your information here.

Hope to see you at our upcoming performances
AND at the 2018 Gala!

The Choral Society of Durham invites you to enjoy some of the best choral music in the world in one of the most beautiful chapels in the country.

The 2017-2018 season begins on Saturday and Sunday, December 9th and 10th, with a two-part holiday concert featuring Bob Chilcott’s settings of Advent antiphons, and arrangements of Christmas carols by Julian Wachner complete with brass accompaniment and audience participation.

The remaining concerts of the season include a Lenten presentation of Dvorak’s sublime Stabat Mater (Saturday, February 17), Mahler’s majestic Symphony #2 featuring organist David Briggs (Sunday, April 22) and Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna celebrating the theme of light (Saturday, May 5).

The above concerts will be performed at Duke University Chapel located on the Duke Campus in Durham, NC. Please click on Tickets for ticket information and concert times.

In addition, our Chamber Choir and contralto Monica Reinagel will perform a free concert at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Durham, NC on Saturday, March 10. This special concert, Creation and Creativity, includes Copland’s In the Beginning and Brahms’ first set of Liebeslieder Waltzes (Op. 52).
