The Hickory Choral Society last sang for a live indoor audience in December 2019. We appreciate all who supported us during our season of virtual programming, and cannot wait to share with you the gift of live singing accompanied by a live full orchestra. For your safety and ours, 100% of HCS singers and staff are fully vaccinated.

Since the spring of 1978, the Hickory Choral Society has delighted audiences with a diverse repertoire of excellent choral music. The Hickory Choral Society provides this region with a series of exciting and well-attended concerts. The all-volunteer group of approximately 100 singers from Catawba and surrounding counties is well known throughout North Carolina, especially for its annual Christmas Concerts. The group has performed numerous concerts with the North Carolina Symphony, and has traveled extensively, performing at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York, Portsmouth and London, England and Edinburgh, Scotland. In April of 2019, the Hickory Choral Society completed a concert tour of Austria and the Czech Republic, performing in Salzburg, Vienna and Prague. The HCS Founding Conductor J. Don Coleman retired at the end of 2019 and following a nationwide search Dr. Ryan Luhrs became the Artistic Director/Conductor. The Hickory Choral Society is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
