This weekend, The Heart of the Triad Choral Society will perform “Mass: A Celebration of Love and Joy” (by Andre Thomas) at Main Street United Methodist Church in Kernersville, NC, on Friday, May 12th at 7 p.m., and Saturday, May 13th at 3 p.m. Dr. Andre Thomas combined the words of the ordinary mass with words from traditional spirituals to compose a 5-movement work in a gospel style. H.T.C.S. will be performing with a 30-piece professional orchestra, and two Professional Soloists: Kay Marion and Rev. Kenneth Pettigrew. In addition to our Featured Soloists for both performances, H.T.C.S. will be joined by the Glenn High School Choir on Friday Night and North Davidson High School Choir on Saturday. We are so incredibly excited to feature such an amazing wealth of talent for both Friday and Saturday’s concerts. The Heart of the Triad is a Non-Profit, Community-Driven Choir led by Artistic Director, Dr. Carol Earnhardt.
