Washington Master Chorale

Washington Master Chorale

Community Chorus

Based in Washington, DC

The Washington Master Chorale is a vibrant, sixty-voice professional and volunteer chorus that has quickly garnered a reputation throughout the Washington region for vocal excellence and discriminating concert programing. Since its debut concert in 2010 under the baton of Artistic Director Thomas Colohan the Chorale's performances have received repeated critical acclaim. The Washington Post hails the ensemble's singing as "remarkable for its beauty," "seamlessly blended," and "a sound worth hearing."

Equally at home singing the work of both American and European masters, the Chorale is noted for its innovative presentation of choral works within the context of their culture and time. The group focuses on choral repertoire from the 19th century onward with a particular emphasis on music of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Chorale is also dedicated to the the expansion of the choral canon, and maintains that commitment through its annual commissioning of new choral works by leading American composers.

Speaking of the Chorale, renowned choral composer Morten Lauridsen says, "Maestro Colohan and his splendid singers are committed to choral excellence and will enrich the lives of all who experience their artistry." Choral icon Alice Parker says "it was a pleasure to hear (this) excellent chorus. I was really impressed..."
