Critically acclaimed Brass group, Carolina Brass, powers ahead with the NC Master Chorale to create an unforgettably warm and tasty holiday recording. Recorded Live. Founded in 1942 as the Raleigh Oratorio Society, the North Carolina Master Chorale is committed to bringing the very finest in choral music performance to Raleigh- Durham-Chapel Hill audiences. Under the direction of Dr. Alfred E. Sturgis since 1993, the Chorale boasts a 170-voice symphonic chorus and a 22-voice professional chamber choir. Hailed by critics as Raleigh’s premier choral ensemble, the Chorale primarily performs choral masterworks with orchestra.

Hailed by critics as one of America’s finest chamber music groups, the Carolina Brass continues its mission of promoting the arts and music education to audiences of all ages. This dynamic group brings virtuosity and good humor to the concert stage as well as the classroom, in formal and informal settings.

“A high energy, highly competent ensemble (Carolina Brass) that delivers polished brass on the spot with a spark…” National Public Radio
