The Masterwork Chorus is an auditioned chorus of approximately 100 voices, and is dedicated to generously enriching the life of the cultural community. Since 1961 the chorus has returned to the Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall every year for its signature performance of Handel’s Messiah. This 2014 season marks the group’s 253rd and 254th performance of the work since its founding in 1955. Web:
