Singers of New and Ancient Music (SONAM) is a chorus committed to creating high-quality sacred and secular music and giving back to the community. Our mission is to make excellent choral music that supports local non-profits through benefit concerts.

SONAM was established in 2012. The group consists of about 20 talented singers from central North Carolina, led by conductor Allan Friedman and accompanist Jane Lynch. As a volunteer organization, we're sustained entirely by donations of time and resources.

SONAM invites you to our Early Spring 2019 concert benefiting the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill, which provides a "Home Away From Home" for families of children undergoing medical care in area hospitals. This concert takes place Sunday, March 10, 2019, at 3:00 pm, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Chapel Hill, NC. It will feature music of hope and strife from Lutheran masters - Sch├╝tz, Bach, Brahms, and Distler - as well as Caroline Shaw's To the Hands.
