ABOUT THE CHORALE
The Brazeal Dennard Chorale was founded in 1972 by Detroit educator and artistic director, Dr. Brazeal W. Dennard (1929-2010). It is an organization of highly-trained adult singers, dedicated to developing the art of choral singing to its highest professional level. It is also deeply committed to the discovery, performance and preservation of the Negro spiritual and classical choral works by African American composers. In addition, the Chorale enjoys performing choral works of composers from around the world.
Since 2015, The Chorale has been under the artistic direction of one of Dr. Dennard’s former students, the accomplished Ms. Alice McAllister-Tillman. As a soprano, renowned for her impeccable coloratura, she brings to the table all of Dr. Dennard's teaching and her unique interpretation of spell-binding choral literature.
The Chorale remains highly visible in the community by partnering with Detroit Public and Charter Schools for annual performances, as well as performances at local churches throughout the metro Detroit area.
The Chorale performs annually with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra during their Classical Roots Celebration which honors the contributions to classical music by composers of African descent.
