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 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.Share:
