Fall 2021 Update

To our beloved Masterworks Chorale community,

Greetings and welcome to the beginning of our new 2021-2022 season! I am pleased to report that our singers have been able to come together again in person SAFELY to make some joyful noise together! However, due to continuing COVID restrictions on large indoor gatherings, we will not be performing a fall concert this season. We are still aiming for a winter concert in the new year, so stay tuned!

Our annual Messiah Sings tradition will continue in its virtual format this year on Saturday, December 18 at 7:30 PM. Details on how to register will also be forthcoming.

We look forward to seeing you face to face as soon as we can so that we may revel together in the splendor of choral music!

Best regards,
Jack Ward, President of Masterworks Chorale
