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, SONAM is sustained entirely by donations of time and resources.

SONAM's spring 2020 concert has been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to reschedule the concert for August 2020, and will provide updates as they are available. We're disappointed not to share our music with you this spring, but encourage you to nonetheless make donations to our non-profit partner for this concert, PORCH, to support their hunger relief efforts. Compassion and helping the community however possible are especially important in this uncertain time.

Please visit our upcoming concerts page for more information and updates about our 2019-2020 concert season and non-profit partners!
