The Masterworks Chorale is a regional chorus comprised of 40-60 University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College students and community members. This group performs standard works from the choral repertoire, including larger works such as Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass (Mass No. 11 in D Minor) and smaller collections of pieces, like traditional spirituals and musical theater compilations.
There is no audition required for the chorus, and all who love to sing are welcome. Rehearsals occur on Monday nights between 7:00 – 9:00 pm, and begin the first Monday of each semester. Two concerts are performed each year, often with instrumental accompaniment. Mary Billman serves as accompanist, with Dr. Sarin Williams as conductor.
