The Southern Delaware Choral Society was created to bring quality choral music to southern Delaware and to provide singers with the opportunity to enhance their musical knowledge and skills. Two concerts are presented annually with two performances (sometimes three) of each concert performed in a variety of Sussex County venues. Ann Freeman is Interim Conductor, Richard Freeman is Assistant Conductor, and Rebecca McDaniel is rehearsal accompanist. Gail Launay serves as Executive Director.
This program is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
