ABOUT WASHINGTON FESTIVAL CHORALE
Great music, great fun
Washington Festival Chorale originated as the Washington Community Choir, directed for many years by Mr. G. Richard Zimmerman. Reborn under the direction of Mr. Matthew Boice as the Washington Festival Chorale, the choir has performed a wide variety of choral literature.
Highlights of the choir’s past seasons include: Handel's Messiah, a tribute to John Rutter, a 9/11 10th year memorial concert, several Christmas Brasstacular concerts with the River City Brass, summer outdoor patriotic concerts in collaboration with Community Band South, several appearances with the Washington Symphony Orchestra, and concerts at Washington's Whiskey Rebellion Festival.
In addition to our annual Christmas concerts, our spring and summer concerts have included February Follies, April Foolies, Neighbors, A Night on Broadway, Old Time Religion, Wearin' of the Green, Irish Eyes, and Road Trip.
The choir continues to be involved with the community by presenting concerts that have benefited Habit for Humanity, The Citizens' Library, and by co-hosting performances for the local Artist's Co-Op and The Church of the Covenant's day school.
