Upcoming Concerts & Workshops:

Chorworks is very sorry to have to announce the cancellation of this year’s Emerging Artists Program. In a statement issued today, Duke University announced:

In light of the continuing uncertainty about our ability to safely conduct programming on campus over the next several months, Duke will be implementing the following changes for all university-sponsored summer programs: All Duke-sponsored academic curricular and co-curricular programs scheduled for the entire summer must be delivered remotely or online. No campus-based programming or classes will be permitted.

Sadly, we cannot achieve our objectives online! We will obviously update our website as and when any alternative arrangements can be made. Please e-mail us at chorworks@gmail.com to add your name to our mailing list so we can stay in touch with you.
