Recruiting Singers for Bach’s Magnificat and Other Holiday Favorites

Come help us celebrate the Master Chorale’s 40th anniversary!

If you can read music and want to sing along with us in harmony and fellowship, please consider joining the Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale as it celebrates 40 years of making beautiful music.  If you enjoy singing celebrated classical or contemporary pieces, rehearsing to master singing techniques and sharing music with others in performances, now is the perfect time to join the Chorale.    

On Tuesday, August 28th, the Chorale will begin rehearsals for this years special celebration of holiday concerts in December.  Rehearsals are every Tuesday from 7 – 9 pm at Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints, 2672 Janin Way, Solvang.  (New singers should come at 6:30 p.m. to meet the director.) 

Under the direction of Dr. Michael Eglin, the Chorale and a professional orchestra will present a program of classic and contemporary holiday pieces on December 8 and 9.  The program centerpiece will be Johann Sebastian Bach’s Magnificat, an exuberant and dramatic piece written by Bach in Leipzig for 1723 Christmas Vespers.  The concert program will also include an eclectic mix of holiday favorites. 

This concert is one of several that the Chorale regularly brings to the community.  The Chorale is a member-supported, non-profit organization that performs diverse choral music accompanied by professional musicians.  Comprised of adults and children, the Chorale has been presenting concerts of outstanding and varied music for forty years.
