Each December, thousands of soldiers travel through Charlotte Douglas International Airport heading home for the holidays.
The Charlotte Chorale is proud to donate sausage biscuits to the USO to feed the soldiers through our Buy A Biscuit Program. Over the years we have donated over 40,000 sausage biscuits.
The Charlotte Chorale is proud to share their music with the community and to use its performances to and benefit local organizations.
Over the years local organizations have received donations from Charlotte Chorale that we've collected which included toys, books, blankets, breakfast items and socks. They include Bright Blessings, The Men's Shelter of Charlotte, Crop Walk, Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, KinderMourn, Musical Heirs, American Red Cross, USO of North Carolina, Hospitality House of Charlotte and Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Charlotte.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those in our community.
We have been asked many times about what makes us different than other choirs in the area. The answer is Diversity, (in singers and repertoire) and that we use our music to help other people. To accomplish this we sometimes have to take the music to the people. We have traveled all over the Carolinas and here are just a few stops along the way:
Biltmore Estate Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens VFW National Convention
Southern Christmas Show Cabarrus Country Fair Charlotte Douglas International Airport
Matthews Alive Christmas at Billy Graham Library Taste of Charlotte
Levine Children’s Hospital ChristmasVille WBT Holiday On Ice
We’ve presented our shows at different venues, sung the National Anthem for the USO, Carowinds Opening Day, Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Checkers.
There have been many musical moments during a concert that makes a singer tingle, and one special moment was honoring veterans from WWII through the Iraq War during “Song for the Unsung Hero” at the “Sing Noel” concert.
Each time we give a performance, we think that we are the ones changing lives. But then you get a smile from a hospitalized child or a soldier about to deploy or an audience member and you realize, they are changing our lives.
