Masterworks Chorale looking for singers

January 12, 2017

The Indiana State University Masterworks Chorale, a large vocal ensemble of students, faculty and local community members dedicated to the study and performance of major choral works, is looking for singers for the spring 2017 semester.

The first rehearsal is scheduled for 7-9 p.m. Monday, Jan. 23 in room 150 of the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts, located on the Indiana State campus at 7th and Chestnut streets.

All regular rehearsals will be 7-9 p.m. Mondays. Dress rehearsal dates and times will be announced at the first rehearsal. Indiana State students interested in joining should register for credit, while there is a $30 fee for community members (which includes non-State students) to cover the cost of music for the semester.

This semester, the Masterworks Chorale will perform "Requiem" by American composer Bradley Ellingboe, former professor of music and director of choral activities at the University of New Mexico. This work, premiered in 2002, is written for chorus and orchestra, and has been performed extensively throughout the country, most notably to excellent reviews at both Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York City.

For questions or more information, contact Mark Carlisle, director, at 812-237-2761, or by email at Participation by campus and community members from throughout the Wabash Valley is very much encouraged and welcomed!
