Experience Masterworks Chorale

In this concert season of the Masterworks Chorale, we celebrate the musical variety and spiritual unity of humanity. From our Christmas concert with carols from around the world, through the prayers for peace across the centuries in our Classics concert, to our Collage concert with folksongs and popular music appealing to all ages, we’ll demonstrate an entertaining variety of musical expression while revealing the underlying emotional connections that support a worldwide community.

The mission statement of the Masterworks Chorale is “Connecting lives through choral music,” and especially in this concert season do I hope that the beautiful and meaningful music we offer promotes the connection between us all.

-Tim Cloeter, ​Artistic Director

Calendar


  • Christmas Concert:
    In Dulci Jubilo

    Saturday, December 3, 2016 8 p.m.
    Sunday, December 4, 2016 4 p.m.

    Epworth United Methodist Church


    We open our season “in sweet rejoicing,” drawing on Christmas carols from around the world to celebrate new birth, generous hearts, and warm community. Punctuating a concert of multiple languages and musical styles will be settings of In dulci jubilo, a text that in itself suggests pluralism by incorporating both Latin and German. With this program of songs, readings, and audience carols, we’ll usher in the holiday season thoughtfully and joyfully.

    Tickets: Adult - $25/$20, Student - $12


  • Classics Concert:
    Verleih uns Frieden

    Saturday, April 1, 2017 8 p.m.


    Trinity Episcopal Church

    When we are open-hearted to all, our diversity can enrich our society, but when we falter, it can lead to a fractured community. At all times in human history have we struggled to establish the true community we desire, and so throughout the centuries we have created music that expresses our need for peace. At our Classics concert in the beautiful and resonant space of Trinity Episcopal Church, we’ll present Mendelssohn’s Verleih uns Frieden (Grant us peace), settings of Laetatus sum (Psalm 121) by Victoria, Mozart, and Monteverdi, and settings of the Hebrew texts Hine ma tov (Behold how good, from Psalm 133) and Sim shalom (Grant peace).

    Tickets: Adult - $25/$20, Student - $12


  • Collage Concert:
    What a Wonderful World

    Saturday, June 3, 2017 8 p.m.


    The Valentine Theatre


    The colors of the rainbow
    so pretty in the sky
    are also on the faces of people going by,
    I see friends shaking hands saying
    “how do you do?”
    They’re really saying “I love you.”

    These lyrics describing racial harmony were immortalized in Louis Armstrong’s rendition of “What a Wonderful World,” and a choral setting of this jazz standard will also form the centerpiece of our concert at the historic Valentine Theatre. In a program that includes the collaboration of exceptional Toledo artists including the Ballet Theatre of Toledo and the Junior Choral Society, we’ll celebrate folksongs and popular music from across the globe. Not only will this music illuminate the similarity of our human experience regardless of culture and language, but the participation of the high school dancers of the Ballet Theatre of Toledo and the fourth through ninth grade singers of the Junior Choral Society will also demonstrate the ways our communal unity extends across all stages of life.

    Tickets: Adult - $30/$25, Student - $17
