The Rocky Mount-based Tar River Chorus has announced an upcoming “Gospel Spectacular.” The April 5 concert will feature four different groups — Tar River Chorus, Tar River Children’s Chorus, Tar River Philharmonic and Salvation and Deliverance Church (S&D) Choir of Tarboro.
“It’s a shared cultural event. It puts literally everybody on one stage at one time to be part of the same activity,” said Reese Adams, director of marketing for Tar River Chorus.
“Each ensemble is exceptional and worthy of attention by themselves,” said Tar River Chorus Conductor Michael Glasgow. “And this combination represents a one-of-a-kind collaboration musically and culturally. The joining of groups from Tarboro and the Rocky Mount area is an exciting new step for music in the area and creates in essence a vocal super-group.”
The Tar River Chorus has been performing more than 28 years in diverse venues, including Carnegie Hall and Rocky Mount’s own North Carolina Wesleyan Chapel. Adams said the Tar River Chorus is a group of 35 to 40 or 60 musicians from the region, some professional and some amateur.
