The Masterworks Chorale of Carroll County will present its spring concert, "Songs of Peace and Rejoicing,” on Sunday, May 5 at 3 p.m. in Baker Memorial Chapel on the campus of McDaniel College. The choir, which has been led by Dr. Margaret Boudreaux since 2002, will also feature Carroll County native Jacob Ziegler as the organist. The concert will feature works by Michael Praetorius and many others.
The Masterworks Chorale of Carroll County, known formerly as the Carroll County Choral Arts Society, was founded in 1977 under the direction of conductor David Kreider. Since its founding, the group has brought the community the works of historical masters such as Mozart, Brahms, Haydn, Handel and Mendelssohn, as well as many contemporary composers. The group has performed in Baltimore at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen and with the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions Choir. Collaborative performances have included Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Georgetown University Orchestra and Choir, Columbia Orchestra, Frederick Regional Youth Orchestra, Westminster Symphony Orchestra, Children’s Chorus of Carroll County and the McDaniel College Choirs. The Carroll Festival Chorus, which combined members of both the Masterworks Chorale and the McDaniel College Choir, was selected in July 2005 to participate in Festival 500, “Sharing the Voices,” held in St. Johns, Newfoundland. More recently, Masterworks Chorale participated in the 2012 World Choir Games in Cincinnati. In 2006, members of Masterworks Chorale formed the nucleus of the choir that premiered Lorraine Whittlesey’s “Einstein’s Dreams (it’s about time…),” based on the novel, “Einstein’s Dreams,” by Alan Lightman.
