The Masterwork Camerata
A chamber ensemble comprising of members of Masterwork, The Masterwork Camerata is a highly selective, mixed choir of 15-20 voices chosen by audition from the full chorus. The Masterwork Camerata performs both its own individual concerts and, when appropriate, as part of full Masterwork Chorus concert programs. Leadership of the Camerata is shared by Masterwork’s Music Director Andrew Megill and Associate Conductor Sun Min Lee.
The Masterwork Camerata performs challenging repertoire. Its members are experienced singers with good vocal and sight reading skills and a passion for ensemble singing. The Camerata rehearses in preparation for each concert (about 10 hours of rehearsals per concert), but members are expected to do most learning on their own outside of rehearsals.
The Masterwork Camerata has two standing engagements in its program year:

Camerata and Family Promise
The Masterwork Camerata recently did a recording for Family Promise, a non-profit organization whose mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence. They principally work through church congregations in 41 states (and growing) by identifying and helping care for people in need. Family Promise is headquartered in Summit.
Carolyn Winfrey Gillette of Family Promise wrote new words to a familiar hymn (Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise) to put Family Promise's mission into song, and the Masterwork Camerata was asked to record it for them.
