The 26th edition of the Cardinal Chorale will be in Coshocton for a Winter Pops Concert with special guests, the Coshocton Community Choir. The concert will take place on Sunday, February 20 at 3 p.m. at the new home of the Coshocton Community Choir – Grace United Methodist Church, 422 Walnut St. in Coshocton.
The choir will also sing several hymns during Grace’s 10 a.m. worship service that morning.
The choir’s 60-minute program will include selections from their 2021 show, “Let There Be Music!” The choir’s last performance before the pandemic was the Winter Pops 2020 concert. After 762 days, the choir is thrilled to bring music back to Coshocton County. In recent months, the choir’s mission to be “choral ambassadors of hope” has become even more important.
Organized in the summer of 1995 by its conductor, Charles R. Snyder, the Cardinal Chorale is a traveling ensemble of 40 voices made up of singers from high schools and universities. Over its 26-year history, the choir has been invited to sing for a number of professional conferences and has performed on the campuses of Capital University, Muskingum University, Kent State University, Ohio University and Penn State University. The choir has also sung for a number of state celebrations, including the rededication of the Ohio Statehouse and the statehood celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Columbus.
Current local choir members include: Hope Asbury, Alexis Caley, Sam Corbett, Olivia Crouso, Josie Fornara, Dawson Ford, Ryan Gildow, Hunter Gonter, Julia Grimmett, Everett Hall, Grace Hawthorne, Jacob Heading, Sarah Heading, Lauren Johnson , Dakota Kealiher, Kennedy Kittell, Anna Richcreek, Kailyn Shalosky, John Stamper, Aidan Stevens-Woolery, Connor Stevens-Woolery, Liam Stevens-Woolery, Sydney Stewart, Sheldon Stotts and Quinn Wherley.
There is no entrance fee for the concert, but an offering will be received to help cover weekend expenses and continue their missionary work. Recognizing the number of COVID cases in the state, the choir will be wearing masks and encouraging the public to do the same.
