About Masterworks Chorale


Masterworks Chorale is a mixed voice ensemble comprised of singers from the Toledo area. It strives to skillfully and professionally perform a diverse variety of choral literature and provide its audiences and members with an enriching and fulfilling musical experience.

Founded in the fall of 1972 by Benjamin Locke and his mother, Rose Mary Locke, the Chorale has premiered several compositions by local and world-renowned composers and sponsors annual high school internships and choral workshops.
