Mission Statement

Vision: A world made better by great choral music.

Mission: The Masterwork Chorus, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is: To delight audiences and enrich lives through the exploration and performance of great choral music.

Description

Masterwork Chorus is an auditioned volunteer chorus of approximately 100 voices. Guided by our Vision, Mission, and Goals, we are dedicated to enriching and supporting the cultural life of the community through high-quality choral performances. The chorus has a performance history that includes not only the traditional masterworks, but also masterpieces spanning a variety of musical periods and styles. Some are well- known, others less so, but all are equally beautiful.

The chorus rehearses on Wednesday evenings, typically presents three concerts each year, and has performed in venues throughout New Jersey as well as in New York City at Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall, and in Washington, DC at the Kennedy Center. Since 1961 the chorus has returned to the Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall every year for its signature performance of Handel’s Messiah. The group’s Messiah history is iconic, and, although Messiah performances now exceed two hundred fifty in number, the magic of the music and the performance space continue to reign supreme.

Joining forces to make beautiful music is a growing Masterwork tradition. In the spring of 2014, the chorus traveled to Germany to perform with C├Ącilien-Chor of Frankfurt, continuing the "Voices Unite" series that began with joint performances in 2013 in the United States. Masterwork also appeared with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and Ann Hampton Calloway in two 2012 holiday concerts at State Theatre, New Brunswick and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.
