Chicago Master Singers

Mixed Choral Chorus

Based in Chicago, IL

Chicago Master Singers (CMS), an Illinois not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1979 as The New Oratorio Singers. Under the guidance of founding director Thomas Wikman, the chorus' goal was to perform concerts in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago and bring great music to audiences outside the cultural center of the city.

Over the years, CMS has refined and expanded its artistic mission to include the presentation of great choral works at the highest artistic level for the cultural enrichment of its members and the communities it serves. From 1989 to 2020, the chorus was under the artistic direction of Alan Heatherington, and during this time CMS expanded its annual performances from three to six, grew to a membership of 140 singers and diversified its venues to include performance sites throughout metropolitan Chicago. Divine Word Chapel at Techny Towers in Northbrook became a regular performance location.
