WHO WE ARE – The Kona Choral Society is that rare blend of accomplished musicians and enthusiastic novices who make choral treasures come to life! Led by our accomplished and inspirational director, Susan McCreary Duprey, we produce memorable performances of such masterworks as Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” from his 9th Symphony, Ramírez’s Misa Criolla, Brahms’ Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, and Mozart’s Requiem. We also perform music from different genres; including African, Asian, Latin American, Polynesian, American Folk, Black Gospel, Spirituals, as well as traditional Hawaiian choral music. Started in 1990, we are now over 100 singers strong.
