Director's Message

Dear Friend,


Thank you for taking a moment of your time to visit The Frederick Chorale online. I hope you will linger here awhile to learn about who we are and what we provide to the Frederick community in the way of high quality music that inspires, informs, and entertains our audiences.


In this, the Chorale's 37th year, we offer five outstanding opportunities for you to experience an exquisite synthesis of music and poetry performed by some of the finest singers in the area. With each performance we endeavor to communicate through authentic musical expression, and to relentlessly strive for beauty in that transaction. The artistic process itself is valued equally to the product that results—and I believe serves to bind the community of singers and audience through that shared musical experience.


This season we re-energize our effort to connect with the community though cross-cultural engagement and artistic collaboration. The Gospel Music Workshop and Concert, presented in partnership with Frederick's historic Asbury United Methodist Church; the holiday collaboration with Capital Carillon English Handbell Ensemble; the collaboration with Mount St. Mary's University Chorale; the showcase of Maryland composers; and the grand season finale, Giuseppe Verdi's Requiem, with the National Music Festival Orchestra, the Chester River Chorale, and Singing City of Philadelphia in Chestertown, MD, attest to The Frederick Chorale's desire to reach out, to share, and to serve. Please go to our Performances/Events, Tickets and Donate pages to access our season schedule, purchase tickets, and make your tax-deductible contribution.


The Frederick Chorale Board of Directors has taken charge of the organization's success as a viable nonprofit organization. They recognize that public-serving organizations thrive best when they derive financial support from the community at large. This summer, members of the FC Board have developed a new, multi-faceted strategy for cultivating public support. So when you see our posters and publicity online and around the town, this is our way of reminding you that your generous contribution, in addition to your concert patronage, is truly a personal investment in creating the community as you would have it be.


If you are one of The Frederick Chorale's loyal concert patrons, I look forward to seeing you again this season. If you haven't yet heard the Chorale, and you are looking for something new and thoroughly inspiring in your arts entertainment, then I urge you to give us a try. I am confident you will be impressed.


Very respectfully,


Douglas D. Cox

Music Director
