“This ambitious season will feature everything you love about the Turtle Creek Chorale. I’m particularly excited about our return to the Meyerson Symphony Center for several productions. Putting together this season has been an incredible adventure musically, as we will be presenting so many of the pieces that have made the Chorale extraordinary. There is so much history in the music we sing, and I’m thrilled to revisit these pieces once again. But the new music is absolutely extraordinary, and I’m looking forward to continuing our choral-theater presentations that have become our identity the past few years. You won’t want to miss any of these diverse, intriguing, and beautiful programs, ” says Sean Baugh, Artistic Director.
