Concert Singers of Cary is pleased to welcome Lindsey Bruner Woodcock as guest conductor for our first program of the 2023-24 season.
Lindsey is Director of Choral Activities and Coordinator of Music Education at Meredith College in Raleigh, where she directs three choral ensembles and teaches conducting, secondary choral methods, and elementary music methods. She holds degrees from the University of Georgia, University of Iowa, and Iowa State University. She and her family moved to the Triangle a few years ago.
As a singer and double bassist, Lindsey has immersed herself in community music-making. She says she has a deep love for community choral singing – and we do too!
We’re excited to work with Lindsey on our November 7th performance, titled Our Star will not Wane: Celebrating Black Composers of the Americas. While African American spirituals, gospel and jazz have long been celebrated in the choral canon, Black composers writing in other styles have often been denied the recognition and acclaim they deserve. This concert features some of the extraordinary contributions of those composers, from both North and South America. We hope you will join us for this event.
In case you’re wondering, CSC’s Artistic Director Nathan Leaf will be back conducting CSC performances in the second half of our season. He has stepped back briefly as he works on launching a multi-year special project in choral music at NC State (and, we hope, getting some new conductor jokes.)
