Story

Providence Singers is a 100-voice concert choir based in Rhode Island. We present several concerts a years, some of them self-produced and some in performance with the Rhode Island Philharmonic and other area ensembles.  Directed by Dr. Christine Noel, Providence Singers is committed to musical excellence, community engagement, and education. 

April update:
 

Thanks to your support, in the first half of our Virtual Season we were able to record three virtual choir videos, including the premiere recording of "Westminster Bridge," a work for choir, piano, and string quartet by Ola Gjeilo. This work was commissioned by the Providence Singers and premiered in May 2017 at our concert "Northern Voices: Music of Scandinavia and the Baltic." We offered a series of six online workshops, and released the 2018 concert recording of The Wound in the Water, a choral symphony by Kim André Arnesen.  

In the second half of the season, we organized and hosted the 13th annual Young Men's Choral Festival as an online event led by conductor, educator, and media personality Dr. Anthony Trecek-King.  We prepared the music for two virtual choir videos and offered another  six-workshop series.

There's still more to come: 

  • Two new virtual choir videos:  "The Time Has Come" by Ēriks Ešenvalds, which sets excerpts of the text of Nelson Mandela's inaugural address; and "Abide With Me," a well-known hymn in an arrangement by Moses Hogan. 
  • A new, mobile-responsive website built on the Wix platform, online in late June.

Your donation will help us keep the music coming (and the lights on.)  We deeply appreciate your support during this challenging season, and we look forward to seeing you next season.
