Don Thompson Chorale
Sunday, December 3, 2017
The Don Thompson Chorale was founded in 1995 by alumni of the Florida Junior College Chorale who were directed by Mr. Thompson from 1969 through 1983. The group has since grown to include talented singers from all over Northeast Florida. Mr. Thompson directed the group from 1995 until he retired in 2003; Michael Dell, who had served as the group's accompanist and Associate Director since 1999, led the group for six music-packed years from 2003-2009. Currently the group is directed by a team of talented members from within the Chorale, who take turns singing, directing and accompanying. The DTC performs a wide variety of choral music, sacred and secular, accompanied and a cappella, from the sublime to the ridiculous. Above all, concerts feature a passion and enthusiasm for choral blend and musical color.
The DTC is a volunteer community chorus whose prime directive is to create beautiful choral music and share it with as many people as possible.
