Inspiring our Audiences

This past season Sacramento Master Singers celebrated thirty years under the inspired direction of Dr. Ralph Hughes. Throughout our 2015-2016 season, Hughes and SMS presented favorite pieces from the choir’s thousand-year, thousand-song, multicultural repertoire—plus exciting contemporary works from around the globe.

The Sacramento Master Singers is a group of choral musicians from the greater Sacramento area who are dedicated to the advancement of choral music.

Established in 1982, the singers delight, challenge, and inspire their audiences with seasons programmed to include premieres, classics, and a wide variety of musical periods and styles.
