Delaware ChoralArts serves the greater Wilmington area by enriching the community through excellent and inspiring performances of great choral literature; supporting its talented and dedicated membership with professional skill and leadership; and nurturing the art of choral music through scholarships, commissions and showcases. Known for its expressive singing, varied and diverse programming, and its ability to produce a thrilling “wall of sound,” Delaware ChoralArts (DCA) has brought a rich palate of choral music to the region since its beginnings in 1984. Originally formed by David Christopher, subsequent music directors have included Mary Woodmansee Green and Charles (Chic) Walker with David Christopher returning in the fall of 2005 for a second tenure.

Delaware ChoralArts, English Choral Legacy, David Christopher, Conductor, MusicianIn addition to having sung with many orchestras from the region, DCA first performed with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra in the summer of 2009 as part of the City of Wilmington’s 4th of July Celebration in the Tubman-Garrett Park on Wilmington’s Riverfront, followed by a collaborative performance of the Brahms Requiem in the spring of 2012.  DCA strives to nurture and develop young people’s appreciation of the choral art through its competition for young composers and now through its “side-by-side” collaboration with high school students as well as its frequent collaboration with the Wilmington Children’s Chorus. DCA is run by a dedicated Board of Directors made up of members of the chorale along with support from members of the community who serve in an advisory capacity.

Funding for DCA comes from a number of sources including generous grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts and a growing number of enthusiastic Patrons, fund raising projects and ticket and ad sales.
