Master Singers of Worcester (Choir)

Founded: 1976 - Worcester, Massachusetts, USA

Founded in 1976, The Master Singers of Worcester, Inc. has distinguished itself through consistent, high quality presentations of a wide range of great choral music spanning several centuries. The chorus repertoire includes not only more familiar masterworks, but also lesser known sacred and secular choral works as well as many first performances and area premieres of works by contemporary composers. In continuous operation as a self-supporting, non-profit, volunteer-administered and professionally directed community chorus for men and women from young adult to senior, it performs three or four concerts annually in addition to community outreach events. The chorus numbers approximately 50 members from Worcester and its surrounding communities. Weekly rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings at the First Congregational Church in Shrewsbury. Artistic Director and well-known concert pianist Malcolm Halliday has led the organization since the fall of 1998.

The Master Singers To Go is a 12-member choral ensemble composed of MSW members. Master Singers To Go provides outreach for the larger organization, bringing music to many audiences in the area and the region. It has performed for numerous public events and private functions in the Worcester area since 2003 in addition to touring and recording. This choral group id directed by MSW member Matthew Johnsen.
