Friday, Nov. 22 from 6-7 p.m., join the Cherokee Chamber Singers at the N.C. State Capitol! For one hour, these middle and high school students will perform the program “Si Otsedoha,” which translates from the Cherokee language as “We’re Still Here.” 

The Cherokee Chamber Singers, the premier vocal ensemble from Cherokee High School in Cherokee, N.C.. are directed by Michael Yannette. As representatives of both their school and the Cherokee community, their unique and varied programs offer audiences not only a traditional and modern glimpse of Native American music, but also performances of traditional choral, classical, musical theatre, and pop/rock genres. 

Guests will be able to listen to the performance and ask the students and director questions in between songs and during a question and answer portion at the end of the program. This event is free, and no reservations are necessary. Come and greet these North Carolina students before they represent the state in Washington, D.C., where they will perform Sunday, Oct. 24 at the National Gallery of Art in our nation’s capital. 

This program is part of Come Hear NC, a celebration of 2019 as the Year of Music in North Carolina. Please call (919) 733-4994 for more information. 

The State Capitol’s mission is to preserve and interpret the history, architecture and function of the 1840 building and Union Square. It is within the Division of State Historic Sites within the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, and located at One Edenton Street, Raleigh.
