Asheville Symphony Chamber Chorus
In the Fall of 2016, Dr. Lancaster recreated the Asheville Symphony Chamber Chorus and modeled on an accomplished touring choir. It is comprised 33 singers re-auditioned and selected from the Asheville Symphony Chorus for beauty of tone, fine musicianship and ability to blend. The repertoire for the Chamber Chorus is timeless and varied; a typical performance will feature Renaissance motets, Brahms quartets, Appalachian folk songs and African-American spirituals. They have performed in Asheville, Hendersonville, Highlands, Waynesville, at the Omni Grove Park Inn and with the Asheville Symphony Orchestra in the ASO’s performance of Pavane by Fauré.
