Silent Auction Sept. 11

We are having a silent auction as a part of the "Meet and Greet" at our first rehearsal. Please look around for suitable items for this fundraiser, and let me know what you're bringing. Thanks!

Saturday, August 19, 2017


The Masterworks Chorus is looking for individuals to share their vocal talents for the upcoming Christmas season of concerts. A simple audition with the Artistic Director, Scott Zane Smith, and a commitment to hard work is all that is needed to become part of a wonderful cache of choral vocalists.

Rehearsals begin Monday, Sept.11, 2017, at Emanuel Lutheran Church, 127 E. High Street, Woodstock, Va., with a meet and greet, information and singing session starting at 6:30 p.m. and running to 8:15.  Immediately following will be time for an  interview/audition .

This season the chorus will be performing works by Rutter, Holst and many holiday favorites by various other composers and arrangers. Rehearsals will be split between Woodstock and the New Market/Broadway area.

New email address / MWC Retreat

Masterworks Chorus now has an e-mail address (thanks to Remy).  It is svmasterworks@gmail.com.  
Don't forget the MWC Retreat to be held Saturday, July 8 from 9-1 at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church at 319 Orkney Grade, Basye, VA.  All choristers are invited to attend.  We will look at by-laws, handbook, and long-range goals with emphasis on the challenges discussed and presented by the Board (namely recruitment and funding).  There will be a pot-luck lunch, so please bring a covered dish. Drinks will be provided.
Directions to Prince of Peace from Mt. Jackson:  Take Rt. 263 West/Orkney Grade from Main St. Mt. Jackson...go about 12.4 miles ..church will be on the right.  You will pass Bryce Resort, but will not travel as far as Orkney Springs.  Drive carefully because it is a curvy road.
