VAE presents its 5th annual Christmas concert, featuring some favorite pieces from past years as well as some new treasures. As has been our custom, the first half of the concert presents seasonal music written by a wide variety of composers, while the second half features well-known carols in appealing choral arrangements. The carols this year include several in popular and jazz styles.
CHRISTMAS CD – *Just Released!!*
VAE is very pleased to announce the release of a brand-new CD of Christmas music recorded in our earlier concerts at Duke Chapel. Copies of this CD, entitled “O Holy Night,” will be available at this year’s Christmas concert.
We hope you will join us at this concert—to hear the beautiful music AND to take a CD home with you!

The Vocal Arts Ensemble of Durham was founded in 1996 by Rodney Wynkoop to provide superior choral performance opportunities for outstanding singers in North Carolina’s Triangle region (Durham, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh). Its 32 members are selected mainly from among musicians who have sung in other choral groups under Dr. Wynkoop’s direction. VAE’s mostly a cappella repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to the present.
