MASTERWORKS CHORALE OF CARROLL COUNTY IS ACCEPTING NEW SINGERS!
Singers of all voice ranges, aged 18 and above, who love great masterpieces of choral music are welcomed! There are no auditions except for solo parts. Our weekly rehearsals (Tuesdays 7-9:30 p.m.) will begin on January 31, 2017, at Westminster Church of the Brethren located at Chase and Bond Streets, Westminster MD 21157. Registration Forms and more information are on our website: www.masterworksofcc.org (click Spring Concert 2017), or leave a voicemail for our Artistic Director, Dr. Margaret Boudreaux, at 410-871-3371.
Please register before the first rehearsal (with dues: $30 payable to MCCC) so that we can ensure a balanced choir and so that we can have scores available for everyone.
In a departure from our normal Sunday performances, our Spring concert, "An American Celebration", is scheduled for SATURDAY, May 13, 3 p.m., in ("Big") Baker Memorial Chapel, McDaniel College, Westminster. We will perform a variety of music by Leonard Bernstein, including excerpts from "Candide", "West Side Story", and "The Lark".
While many know the operetta, "Candide", which is based on French philosopher Voltare's tale of utopian perfection that turns to disillusionment, and "West Side Story", an American version of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet", "The Lark" is not so well known. A drama about Saint Joan of Arc, "The Lark" was adapted for the stage by Lillian Hellman. Leonard Bernstein composed the incidental music for it while also composing the score of "Candide".
Masterworks Chorale of Carroll County (MCCC) is a nonprofit community chorus which is funded in part by grants from the Maryland State Arts Council and the Carroll County Arts Council. MCCC is dedicated to providing opportunities to hear choral music of the highest quality as well as participate in making that music. MCCC performs a variety of works ranging from Baroque, Classical, and Romantic to Contemporary masterpieces by legendary composers including Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Mendelssohn, Mozart, and many more. We work hard at our rehearsals, but also have a lot of fun! We hope that you will join us for what promises to be a wonderful concert season.
