The Charlotte Chorale is pleased to announce to be the recipient of a $10,000 donation provided by Harbor Nissan’s “Harbor Gives Back” program. The funds have been used to purchase a Steinway piano for the Charlotte Chorale’s rehearsals.
“We were so pleased and honored to have been awarded this most generous donation from Harbor Nissan,” said Janet Sims, Marketing Director for the Charlotte Chorale. The Chorale had been without a rehearsal piano since earlier this year due to a change in rehearsal venues. “A temporary portable electronic piano was being used in the interim with the hopes of purchasing a quality used professional piano sometime in the future, and winning this award was perfect timing as our rehearsals begin in October,” said Sims.
The Charlotte Chorale is a nonprofit choral organization with a current membership of approximately seventy voices under the direction of Dr. William Dederer. Three choral concerts are performed each year starting with the very popular Christmas Concert in December 2019 held at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center in Punta Gorda. Rehearsals will begin in October and the new piano will be a excellent addition to the rehearsal venue.
