Thanks for your interesting in becoming a member of our chorus. Due to COVID-19 our chorus is temporarily inactive. Therefore, auditions are also on hold.
However, if you are interested in joining Masterworks, we are still adding people and taking names for our waiting list. We have openings in all sections and hope you will consider auditioning to join us! Penny Purkerson, our New Member Coordinator, will contact you and let you know when it is safe to be together again. She will support you through the process, have information about auditions and how to prepare. Check in with her anytime at: email@example.com and/or (360) 357-5840 Hope to hear from you soon!
Typically, MCE has four one-night performances in October, December, April and June. MCE also hosts the Northwest’s Regional Harmony Sweepstakes contest in March. All events are held at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Olympia. MCE concerts start at 7:30 pm. Immediately prior to the April concert (at 6:15), MCE hosts a reception celebrating the season’s Salute to the Arts honoree and our donors and subscribers.
Generally, rehearsals are from 7-9:30pm on Tuesdays. We currently rehearse at the First United Methodist Church on the corner of Legion and Boundary in Olympia. Rehearsals begin with a vocal warm-up and sight-reading session.
Members purchase their uniform. Men wear tuxedos and women wear the Masterworks concert dress.
