Contra Costa Chorale celebrates 50 years of performance
on January 26, 2016
This year, the Contra Costa Chorale celebrates their 50th anniversary of entertaining audiences in the East Bay. In addition to their usual vast repertoire of music, the choir is highlighting the musical heritage of African and African American cultures in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Selma March and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War. Director Cindy Beitmen discusses this rich choral tradition and the concerts and celebrations planned for this upcoming year.
The chorale’s next concert is on Friday, January 29, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1924 Trinity Avenue, Walnut Creek. For more information on the Contra Costa Chorale, visit ccchorale.org.
