Fall 2020 Update
To our beloved Masterworks Chorale community,
Although this decision was not a surprise, we had held onto a thread of hope that we would be performing Beethoven’s Missa solemnis for our audience on Saturday, November 14, 2020, at Sanders Theatre. This concert was to have been accompanied by an orchestra of unparalleled expertise, with professional soloists, and led by our incomparable music director Kevin Leong. This performance, sponsored by Patricia and the late Keivan Towfigh and dedicated to our longtime friend and accompanist Elissa Putukian, would have been our 80th anniversary concert. It is with deep sadness that the performers of this monumental masterpiece will not be rehearsing or presenting this glorious music throughout the fall.
We continue to be hopeful that our winter concert at Old South Church on February 28, 2021 and our spring concert at Sanders Theatre on May 15 can go forward as scheduled. The repertoire for those performances will be determined as we learn more details from our rehearsal and performance venues.
During this time that we are unable to rehearse and perform, Masterworks Chorale’s board is hard at work strengthening every facet of the organization. When we return to performing masterworks and offering our community Messiah Sings or Summer Sings, you can be sure that our usual high standards and professionalism will continue.
We miss each of you and look forward to your support when we are able to return.
