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. 

February update:
 

Thanks to your support, in the first half of our Virtual Season we were able to record three virtual choir videos, host a series of six online workshops, and release the concert recording of The Wound in the Water, a choral symphony by Kim André Arnesen.  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, 

There's much more to come:

  • The premiere recording of "Westminster Bridge," a work for choir, piano, and string quartet by Ola Gjeilo, is now in video production. This work was commissioned by Providence Singers and premiered in May 2017 at our concert "Northern Voices: Music of Scandinavia and the Baltic."  
  • Online releases of concert recordings from the "Northern Voices"  concert, including works by Ola Gjeilo and Ēriks Ešenvalds.
  •  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 workshop series that includes two vocal workshops, a workshop on the  Alexander Technique, a vocal masterclass by internationally acclaimed bass-baritone Kevin Deas, and an online talk by composer Ēriks Ešenvalds. 

Your donation will help us keep the music coming.  We deeply appreciate your support during this challenging season, and we look forward to seeing you at a concert in the not-too-distant future.
