Lincoln Center Performance A
In 2015, Alamance Chorale was invited by the Distinguished Concerts International New York City to perform an original piece, “Our Father: A Journey Through the Lord’s Prayer,” by Pepper Choplin of Raleigh. They were joined onstage by performers from choirs and churches from across North Carolina, numbering more than 200 singers total, as well as DCINY’s 40-piece professional orchestra.
The Chorale spent five days and four nights in New York preparing for the concert. Members traveled on their own by car, airplane or bus.”

“Our Lincoln Center concert was all I had hoped. The choir of 217 came perfectly ready to sing OUR FATHER and we had plenty of time to truly interpret and dramatize the music. A couple of the DCINY staff said, “Wow, they sure are a HAPPY group.” In the last segment of a long rehearsal, I said we would sing the entire cantata all the way through. I winced when I heard a collective sigh until I realized they were excited to do so. What a gift to the composer!
Here is a rehearsal pic taken by Iris Gross Derke.”
