Special Events

Each season The Chorale invites its patrons to two exclusive events: the Fall Gala and the Spring Benefit. Guests enjoy a seated dinner and premium seating at that evening’s performance; the Spring Benefit additionally offers an array of exclusive items in a live auction benefiting our artistic and education programs.

These events allow The Chorale to continue offering its unique programming and to raise support for its educational activities.

The Collegiate Chorale will present the US premiere of The Road of Promise, a concert oratorio adaptation of Kurt Weill’s and Franz Werfel’s epic stage spectacle, The Eternal Road.  Written in 1936, when Weill and Werfel were exiled in France, The Eternal Road was created against the backdrop of the increasing menace of Nazi Germany.

The Road of Promise takes place in a synagogue, where a group of modern-day Jews has gathered to escape a pogrom.  To calm a 13-year old boy’s fears and to teach the entire congregation about their Jewish faith and heritage, the Rabbi recounts biblical tales, and as he does so, the stories of Abraham and Sarah, Jacob and Rachel, Moses, Naomi, Ruth, Solomon and David come to life.
