The Brevard High School Concert Chorus is the premier performing ensemble at Brevard High School. Under the direction of Mary Beth Shumate for the past twenty years, they perform extensively at the community, state and national levels, and have made tours to New York, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Williamsburg, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. In 2005, through a rigorous selection process, the BHS chorus was chosen as one of three high school choruses in the nation to perform the Durufle Requiem at the second annual Carnegie Hall National High School Choral Festival under the direction of Craig Jessop, Morman Tabernacle Choir conductor, and the St. Luke Orchestra. In 2004 they were awarded first place and division champion at choral competition in Williamsburg, Virginia. Each spring the chorus consistently receives superior ratings in performance and sight reading at the North Carolina State Choral Festival. Recent performance highlights include Brevard Chamber Orchestra (2001 and 2002), the North Carolina Music Educators Association in Winston-Salem, and an appearance in Carnegie Hall as the featured chorus with the National Youth Choir. On an annual basis the singers present madrigal dinners in December, often perform a large choral work with orchestra, and participate in a major Broadway musical in the spring.
Join us before the concert to hear the Brevard High School Jazz Choir, a small ensemble, in the Scott Concert Hall from 1:45 - 2:15 PM. See you there!
