The Hickory Choral Society raised its collective voice for the first time in 1978, touching music lovers in the Catawba Valley with the spirit of song. Today, some 110 singers blend their voices in harmony, brought together by a common devotion to musical excellence. The work of the Hickory Choral Society is a testament to the belief that each person, regardless of station, should be allowed to share the divine, universal gift of music and its immeasurable rewards.
Since 1978, the Hickory Choral Society has excited, enthused, and entertained its audiences with rich, wonderful, and powerful choral music. We believe that our fortieth anniversary season is going to be our best season yet!
The Hickory Choral Society builds its foundation around members who come together each Monday night to make the most inspiring choral sound in this area. The Society also relies on contributing members, and you, to underwrite its performances that feature premier works by new and exciting choral composers.
The tradition of choral music continues to thrive in our region with your support of the J. Don Coleman Endowment Fund. This fund provides grants which assist local public school music programs. In addition, the choral music of HCS is collected in the I.G. Hamlin and Paulette Lael Music Library. This library lends quality choral music to neighboring schools, colleges, and churches.
