Masterworks Chorale of Carroll County Seeks New Members!
Weekly rehearsals begin 1-26-2016
Register in advance
 
Masterworks Chorale of Carroll County (MCCC) invites singers of all voice ranges to join us for our next concert, “Presidential Words in Song”, which will be on Sunday, May 15, 2016, 3:00 p.m. in Baker Memorial Chapel, McDaniel College, Westminster.
 
Visit www.masterworksofcc.org for details about the choir and how to register. Then please leave a message for Artistic Director, Dr. Margaret Boudreaux BEFORE January 26 at 410-871-3371 or via the “contact us” email on the website.
 
Weekly rehearsals will begin on Tuesday, January 26, 2016 from7:00-9:30 p.m. in the Chorus Room at Winters Mill High School. Pre-registration is crucial because we can accommodate a finite number of singers, and because we need to maintain a balance among the voice parts. Singers will be accepted (no audition needed) as they register and should be prepared to attend the first rehearsal.
 
Since this is an election year, the concert theme will be “Presidential Words in Song.” The featured work will be Testament of Freedom by Randall Thompson based on the words of Thomas Jefferson. Other works will feature short settings of presidential quotations, particularly of those who have visited Carroll County. The Carroll County Historical Society has helped Dr. Boudreaux to research these individuals and present their stories. Since some involve significant historical moments (like the Civil War), short groupings of songs associated with those events will fill out the concert.
 
Masterworks Chorale of Carroll County is funded in part by an Operating Grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, and a Community Arts Development Grant from the Carroll County Arts Council.
 
The Americans with Disabilities Act applies to the Carroll County Government and its programs, services, activities and facilities.

Anyone requiring an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication or who has a complaint should contact Madeline M.

The intimate and friendly setting of chamber music is an excellent way to introduce children to classical music. Concerts last about an hour and a half, counting the intermission. Chamber music is truly “The music of friends”. The venues are small; musicians easily interact with the audience, and the acoustics are excellent. Relax and enjoy a truly magnificent concert, then everyone, especially the children, come and delight in meeting the musicians at the free reception immediately following the concert.
 
Chamber Music on the Hill (CMOTH) is dedicated to providing the community with professional performances of great chamber music in all its diversity and to nurturing the musical interests of our young people. Founded by Dr. David Kreider in 1990, CMOTH has brought performers from around the world to Westminster, including musicians from The Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University and winners of the prestigious Liszt-Garrison Festival and International Piano Competition held at Notre Dame of Maryland University. 

CMOTH is a non-profit organization funded in part by a Community Arts Development Grant from the Carroll County Arts Council and the Grants for Organizations Program from the Maryland State Arts Council.
