Rhodes MasterSingers Chorale
William Skoog, Director
Rhodes MasterSingers Chorale is a semi-professional choral ensemble made up of music professionals, faculty, staff, students and choral alumni of Rhodes College. The purpose of the MasterSingers Chorale is embodied in our philosophy:
"Choral performance offers a most personal and universal expression. A singer′s voice is connected to their body, and the sounds made by a choral ensemble are sculpted from the breath of each individual singer and blended into one voice. A choir is the only musical instrument that can present a text in harmony. This harmony creates sonorities of limitless beauty that inspire, challenge, soothe, excite, and delight."
Since 1993, MasterSingers Chorale has presented major choral/orchestral works throughout the region. In 2004, MasterSingers Chorale made their Carnegie Hall debut with a performance of Morten Lauridsen′s "Madrigali", "O Magnum Mysterium", and "Lux Aeterna."
