October 2 Piedmont Singers Concert, 7:30 pm Hampden-Sydney College Campus Crawley Forum


The Piedmont Singers of Central Virginia is a professional vocal octet gaining reputation and traction in the mid-Atlantic region. Founded in 2016, this octet brings chamber-style vocal ensemble performance to a new level of artistry.

The Piedmont Singers bring a careful balance of new and underperformed choral repertoire that is both accessible for people new to this type of musical experience and exciting for veterans of vocal chamber music. Whether it's a meditative program like 2019's “Heaven in a Wildflower” or a passionate and emotional one like 2018's “Love and Madness,” they bring a musical experience found nowhere else. The ‘21-‘22 season brings the thought-provoking program “Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, Human,” exploring humanity's relationship with the four elements of the Earth through an aural immersion in the sounds wind, rain, and stone as expressed by the human voice. The program features a world-premiere piece with text by Hampden-Sydney English Professor Neil Perry, and the concert is directed by Hampden-Sydney Associate Music Professor Helena von Rueden.

The group has performed across the region including performances at The College of William & Mary, Richmond's ArtSpace Gallery, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and Wintergreen Music Festival. The singers are all Virginians, living across the state from Buena Vista to Norfolk, Woodbridge to Clarksville, and several in between, and proud to dedicate their talents to the locales around the state of Virginia. After a season of virtual projects during the pandemic, The Piedmont Singers return to live singing in Fall 2021 with performances on the Hampden-Sydney College Music Series (Hampden-Sydney, VA), the St. Matthias' Episcopal Church Cultural Series (Midlothian, VA), and Trinity Lutheran Church Music Series (Richmond, VA).
