Duke Chorale Christmas Concert

The Chorale Christmas Concert program is online. Follow along with texts for all the pieces performed.

The Duke Chorale, directed by Rodney Wynkoop, presents its annual Christmas Concert featuring seasonal selections by the Duke Chorale as well as traditional carols to sing along to at home. This family holiday event is a long-standing tradition for many area residents and a valuable food drive for Urban Ministries of Durham.

The concert will be free to view online, but please consider donating a non-perishable food item between now and December 1 to Urban Ministries, 410 Liberty St. in Durham. Please drop off donations between 10 am -5 pm, Monday-Friday. Not local? Consider making a financial donation on their website, http://umdurham.org. Don’t forget to mention the Duke Chorale when you donate!

See you December 1 at 7 PM EST!
