The Robert Sharon Chorale
ALL are welcome – come and join us!!
The Robert Sharon Chorale is a community organization which strives to present the best of all types of choral music – Sacred and Secular – in a concert setting.
Our mission is to share the magical sounds of Choral singing with the public. Our goal is not only to convey the joy of making music, but to foster music appreciation, as well.
We believe music is the “universal language of the heart”, which can be understood and appreciated by all.
In addition to concerts in Florida, the Chorale undertakes European concert tours in an effort to share our voices and our music.
Wounded Warrior Family Support Benefit
The Robert Sharon Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Robert Sharon, performed a benefit concert on March 6, 2016 for Wounded Warriors Family Support. The benefit raised $3000 for Wounded Warriors Family Support (wwfs.org), an independent nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured, or killed during combat operations. The highly-regarded organization has a four star rating with Charity Navigator and is universally respected for its good works.
The sold-out event was held in the beautiful DeSantis Family Chapel on the campus of Palm Beach Atlantic College in West Palm Beach. To set the mood for the afternoon, Commander Tony Cerar of West Palm Beach American Legion Post 164 provided a Color Guard to help emphasize the purpose of the afternoon. The featured presentation was a performance of the Requiem by Gabriel Faure, followed by the Chorale’s Chamber Chorus.
The audience was also treated to presentations by the winners of the Robert Sharon Vocal Competition: Hadley Bouchlas (Mezzo-Soprano), a voice major at Dreyfoos School of the Arts and voice student of Marilyn Mims; Sydney Carbo (Soprano), a freshman at Palm Beach Atlantic majoring in Vocal Performance in the studio of Marilyn Mims; Julian Frias (Baritone), a vocal major at Dreyfoos School of the Arts and voice student of Dr. Lloyd Mims, and Sarah Rogers (Mezzo-Soprano), a Freshman at Palm Beach State College and voice student of Michael MacMullen. A medley of Patriotic Music brought the afternoon to a happy conclusion.
One of the goals of The Robert Sharon Chorale is to spread the joy and beauty of Choral music to the public at large. We believe that music is the universal language of the heart, which can be understood and appreciated by all. Music can help heal and bring people together – our fundraiser sought to link these ideals and to say “Thank You” to those who have sacrificed so much for our benefit.
