Dr. Katherine Kinsey, Director
The Chorale, the principal touring choir among the ensembles in the Department of Music, consists of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, more than half of whom are music majors and minors. One of the oldest student organizations in Winthrop's history, the group has included male singers since 1977, after an 88-year history as a women's chorus. The Chorale has given invitational performances at state and Southern Division conferences of the American Choral Directors Association and the South Carolina Music Educators Association. The ensemble recorded Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and appeared in a Leonard Bernstein tribute in Gailliard Auditorium with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. Most recently, the ensemble has appeared with the Charlotte Symphony in performances of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis and Orff's Carmina Burana (also featuring the North Carolina Dance Company and the Charlotte Children's Choir).
