Memphis Masterworks

The goal of the Memphis Masterworks Chorale is to present the great sacred choral-orchestral repertoire in the setting of a worship environment.

The Memphis Masterworks Chorale was founded as a part of the Second Presbyterian Church Music Ministry to continue our longstanding tradition of presenting sacred masterworks for chorus and orchestra with the greater Memphis community in mind.

Our goal is to involve talented singers from all walks of life to participate in these enriching and edifying works of sacred art. We aim to utilize and respect the time of singers who may be involved in other organizations or church choirs without stretching their rehearsal commitments beyond what is needed to fully prepare for a given concert. We also aim to welcome supporters and audiences from the greater community and from sister churches.

This chorale is unique because of our short nine week commitment, the diversity of ages and backgrounds, and the opportunity to learn a piece of music in intense rehearsals to be performed with members of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra. For those who need childcare, arrangements will be made on an individual basis with a nominal fee to cover expense.
