Since 1961, The Masterwork Chorus and Orchestra have returned to the Perelman Stage every year to perform their signature work, Handel's Messiah. Join the chorus and orchestra on December 23, 2016 as this rich tradition continues!
Fill Your Summer with Song
Featuring favorite choral masterworks led by some of the area's top conductors, Masterwork's 2016 Summer Sings take place on Wednesday evenings, June 22, June 29, July 6, July 13, and July 20 at 7:30 pm at the Chatham United Methodist Church.. The $15 price per evening ($7.50 students and listeners) includes score rental, professional soloists, accompanist and refreshments. Booklets of 5 tickets are available for $65, and may be shared.
Repertoire, conductors and their affiliations and directions to the church are all available here.
Plans for the upcoming season have been finalized, and include two December performances of Masterwork's signature work, Messiah. You'll enjoy Messiah at Ridge PAC, but Carnegie Hall, with its iconic acoustics, is THE place to hear Handel’s beloved oratorio.
