J.S. Bach’s “Magnificat in D

It is 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 the revelry in both the Holiday and Spring Concerts.

The Chorale will be joined by special guests the Santa Ynez Valley Wind Ensemble

And Mystique, a local, girls’ acapella group.
