Franz Joseph Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass in D Minor"

The Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale’s 

40th Anniversary Season.

In 1978, a young music teacher, Karl Thompson, formed the Santa Ynez Valley Chorale, along with a dedicated group of singers. The Chorale tackled Bach, Mozart, Handel, Schubert, Brahams and Beethoven.  And today, the list of classical composers’ works remain the core of the Chorale’s presentations. Through the past 40 years the Chorale has performed over 160 concerts of glorious choral music.

The Chorale’s 2018/2019 Season will celebrate the chorale’s musical history from the past 40 years.  Local music groups and past performers will join in celebrating with the Chorale.

If you enjoyed the 40th Anniversary Holiday Concert, mark you calendars for the Chorales Spring Concert on May 11th & 12th, 2019.  The program will include an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary music.  For classic – the Lord Nelson Mass in D Minor by Haydn.  For contemporary - Waterloo and Take a Chance on Me by ABBA, Bit by Bit by Sondheim and It Don’t Mean a Thing by Ellington, to name just a few of the pieces.

Valentine’s Day is nearly here.

 The Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale will, once again, be delivering Singing Valentines throughout the Santa Ynez Valley on Sunday, Feb. 10th from 2 pm to 5pm and on Thursday, Feb. 14th (Valentine's Day) from 9am to 11am and then from 12pm to 7 pm. Make it a special Valentines Day this year by sending a live three song serenade to that special someone in your life.
