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. SONAM was founded in 2012 with two primary missions: to make excellent choral music, focusing primarily on the Renaissance and modern eras, and to support local non-profits through benefit concerts. SONAM consists of about 20 talented singers from central North Carolina and is led by conductor Allan Friedman and accompanist Jane Lynch. SONAM is a volunteer organization sustained by donations of time and resources.

On Thursday, November 9th, 2017 at 7:30 pm, SONAM will present a fall concert, "Violins of Hope", at the Judea Reform Congregation in Durham, NC, in collaboration with the Mallarmé Chamber Players. The concert includes new music from David Kirkland Garner and centers around themes of the violin, Jewish music, and the Holocaust. For more information about this concert, visit our upcoming concerts page.
