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 Saturday, April 28th, 2018 at 3:00 pm, SONAM will present its spring concert at the Chapel in the Pines in Chapel Hill, NC. The concert features music about refugees and home, and all proceeds will benefit a local refugee organization. For more information about this concert, visit our upcoming concerts page.
