Arleen Widerman is a resident of Burlington, NC. She received a degree in Music Education from Elon College and a master’s in Vocal Pedagogy and Music Education from UNC-Greensboro. She worked for more than 30 years teaching music. Her choral experience includes service as Minister of Music at First Reformed UCC in Burlington. Arleen’s first experience with Alamance Chorale was as a college student, and she has been singing with the group since that time. She says that working with the Chorale as musical director is a wonderful way of continuing to learn and grow as a musician.
The Alamance Chorale, a member of Alamance Arts, was formed in 1974 and consists of about 60 members from throughout the community. Chorale members range in age from early twenties to retirees and come from all walks of life. Members come together every Monday evening for two hours of rehearsal and present three concerts per year: a Christmas Concert, two Dinner Show performances and a Spring Concert. The dedicated members, some of whom have been in the group for forty years, enjoy a variety of musical styles and never shy away from a challenge.
