The Carolina Master Chorale is recognized as the premiere symphonic chorus in the region covering northeast South Carolina and southeast North Carolina and is the oldest community singing organization in the area surrounding Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, home of the CMC. In 2015-2016 the Chorale celebrates its 32nd concert season, the fifteenth under the artistic leadership of the ensemble's fourth and current Music Director, Timothy Koch.
The repertoire of the Carolina Master Chorale encompasses a wide variety of innovative and critically-acclaimed programming that includes dynamic performances of traditional and lesser-known choral and choral/orchestral masterworks, full operatic productions, adventurous contemporary music, numerous commissions and premieres, and lighter fare from Broadway to vocal jazz and gospel music.
The annual season of the Carolina Master Chorale features four subscription programs, most of which are performed in multiple locations. A typical CMC season program features performances in venues from Pawley's Island, South Carolina to Sunset Beach, North Carolina and west to Conway, South Carolina. The CMC also performs as an invited guest artist on community concert series throughout the Carolinas.
