Master Singers of Worcester, Ed Tyler, Artistic Director
Founded in 1976, The Master Singers of Worcester, Inc. (MSW) has distinguished itself through consistent, high quality presentations of a wide range of great choral music spanning several centuries. Our repertoire includes not only more familiar masterworks, but also lesser known sacred and secular choral works as well as many first performances and area premieres of works by contemporary composers.
We are a self-supporting, non-profit, volunteer-administered and professionally directed community chorus for men and women from young adult to senior. MSW performs three to four concerts annually. The chorus numbers approximately 40 members from Worcester and surrounding communities as well as the newly formed Manchester, CT chapter. Edward Tyler has directed the chorus since the fall of 2017.
The Master Singers of Worcester invite all interested singers to join our chorus. Weekly rehearsals are held from 7 pm to 9 pm on Tuesday Evenings at the Manchester High School in Manchester, CT or Wednesday evenings at the Salem Covenant Church in Worcester, MA for the convenience of our singers, who may choose to attend either one. Members pay annual dues, purchase their own music, and are expected to volunteer their time in serving various organizational needs. We welcome talented high school, college and graduate school students for internships. Financial aid is available to qualified singers.
Prospective new members are encouraged to attend the first few rehearsals for each concert, which are always open to the public to give interested singers a chance to check us out. Auditions are not required, but some sight-reading skill is recommended. Rehearsals are held on: Tuesdays at Manchester HS (134 East Middle Turnpike, Manchester, CT) Wednesdays at Salem Covenant Church (215 E Mountain Street, Worcester, MA)
All rehearsals 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
