Founded in 1949, Tucson Masterworks Chorale is Southern Arizona’s premier community chorus. We strive to make the great masterworks of choral literature, from pre-Baroque to contemporary, accessible to singers and audience members from all walks of life, to grow musically, and to encourage cultural participation in our community. We are a NonProfit 501(c)(3) organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
Spring 2020 Concert Postponed
Due to concerns about the spread of the novel coronavirus, the board of directors decided on Saturday, March 14, to cancel our April 19 concert of The Seasons. Instead we will perform this same program next Spring, in April of 2021. Those who have already purchased tickets will be able to get a full refund, or may choose to donate that amount to help us defray the unrecoverable costs of this concert.
Spring 2021 Program
Tucson Masterworks Chorale is proud to feature Haydn’s The Seasons for our spring concert season. Though lesser known than its sacred partner The Creation, The Seasons contains everything audiences love of Haydn’s later works: an extended orchestra, large chorus, and vivid imagery. The piece goes through daily life and work in Haydn’s time from peasant characters, praising the land for its life-giving abundance. Tucson Masterworks Chorale will feature vocal soloists Erika Burkhart, Seth Kershisnik and Mitchell Sturges and orchestra members from the Tucson Symphony Orchestra and Fred Fox School of Music.
We will perform The Seasons by Joseph Haydn, with full orchestra and soloists, in April, 2021 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church.
