This spring the Masterworks Chorale will be partnering with the Steel Drum Band from West Union High School (West Virginia) to perform Glenn McClure's St. Francis in the Americas: A Caribbean Mass.  This major work is for chorus, steel drum ensemble, percussion, and vocal soloists.  For the percussion and vocal soloists the Masterworks Chorale is also collaborating with the University of Rio Grande's percussion studio, led by Levi Billiter, and voice studio, instructed by Valerie Tanner.  The work features lively, Latin rhythms, combined with the traditional mass texts and original Spanish poetry by St. Francis of Assisi.  This will be an event not to be missed!
