Choral Arts of Chattanooga

 Choral Arts of Chattanooga

Mixed Choral Chorus from TN, United States.

Choral Arts of Chattanooga was created in 1985 by Dr. John Hamm to provide an opportunity for professionally trained singers to perform choral masterpieces. Dr. Hamm was succeeded after ten years as artistic director by Philip Rice. Under the leadership of these distinguished musicians, Choral Arts has performed such masterworks as Honeggar's "King David", Beethoven's "Miss Solemnis," the Requiems of Brahms, Mozart, Faure, and Durufle.

Choral Arts has also performed under the direction of such noted guest directors as Roger Wagner, Robert Page, and Dale Warland.

In 2004, the group's 20th season, William R. Green was named artistic director to continue the tradition of presenting the finest choral masterpieces and contemporary literature.

Choral Arts of Chattanooga has received international attention for its recordings. Nationally-known music critic Martin Bookspan called "A Christmas Portrait" one of the best recordings of its type, and the Atlanta Journal Constitution included it in its 10 best Christmas albums in 1999. Our latest CD, "Brubeck in Chattanooga," features world premieres by Mr. Brubeck, who specifically selected Choral Arts to record them.

Choral Arts of Chattanooga : A Christmas Portrait

Review: Under the direction of Philip Rice this top-notch choir has accrued critical acclaim and as the only professional chorus in Tennessee has developed a series of highly successful performance seasons. This collection of Christmas music has a very special bonus as it features the world premiere of Dave Brubeck's arrangement of "We Three Kings" which is the icing on the cake of the fine recording. The recording was well produced and engineered and along with extensive color liner notes makes for a great holiday package.

Choral Arts of Chattanooga : Days of Blue and Gray

Review: A rousing collection of patriotic songs from the times of the Civil War with an emphasis on songs from the south. Philip Rice directs the Chorus with great verve and panache as they sing the songs of Stephen Foster among others with stellar arrangements by Robert Shaw and John Rutter. This recording's historical aspects adds to its charm and will be sure to stir the hearts of true sons and daughters of the great southern states.
