Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Carolina Master Chorale Board of Directors, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our CMC family of friends and supporters.  For those of you who are new to our choir, we are excited to meet you and look forward to greeting you in person as soon as health and safety recommendations allow.  If you are a returning friend, thank you for your continued support and encouragement as we face these incredibly challenging times.

Planning for the season ahead is underway, despite the restrictions of the Coronavirus, with the safety and well being of our members and audience our highest priority.  Despite this challenge, we hope you will join us for incredible music, whether it be virtual or in person.  The CMC staff, Board of Directors, and singers are anxious and ready to move forward with performances and events, to be announced as health precautions allow, in many exciting, fun, and entertaining formats and venues.

Music continues to be one of the greatest outlets for people of any age, race, socio-economic status, and family background.  The Carolina Master Chorale is committed to enhance your musical understanding and enjoyment with the promise of providing the opportunity to relax and appreciate the benefits of many great music genres. 

For 38 years, the Carolina Master Chorale has provided high qualify choral performances, frequently partnering with the Long Bay Symphony, as well as professional guest performers, students of music from Coastal Carolina University, and other well-known and acclaimed musical artists.  Under the stellar direction of Dr. Timothy Koch, we will open our 38th season with a special contribution from several accomplished musicians and artists.  We look forward to making this exciting announcement.

The Carolina Master Chorale is proud to be the premier adult choral group performing in the general Myrtle Beach area.  We gather together with the common purpose of perpetuating the richness and diversity of choral music for the enjoyment and edification of audiences and singers alike.  We cannot exist without your support, and for that we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  Please consider auditioning for the CMC, or, if your talents exist outside the rehearsal and concert halls, consider volunteering or offering a financial contribution to offset our essential annual operating costs.

I close with a quote from the incomparable American musical icon, Leonard Bernstein, whose vision for our world is nurtured, strengthened, and celebrated through the voices and direction of the Carolina Master Chorale. 

               “Music is at the top of the spiritual must list.  As long as we insist on maintaining artistic vitality, we are able to hope in our future.” 

Musically yours,

Judi Adams, President of the Carolina Master Chorale Board of Directors
