Inspiring our Audiences

This season Sacramento Master Singers celebrates thirty years under the inspired direction of Dr. Ralph Hughes. Throughout our 2015-2016 season, Hughes will present 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.

Thank you for your support during our Christmas concert season. We are busy planning the March and May concerts and you can buy tickets now.

MARCH 2016

Continuing with the celebration of Dr. Hughes’ 30th anniversary season leading the choir, we‘ll present a blend of audience favorites such as Eric Whitacre’s i thank you God for most this amazing day and the haunting Sisask setting of Deo Gratias.

While celebrating past accomplishments is important, looking to the future is even more relevant. We’ll work with local percussionists to perform the area premier of Tarik O’Regan’s Triptych.

You’ll undoubtedly be pleased to hear fantastic selections from Moses Hogan and Morten Lauridsen that will inspire you to sing as well.

As is SMS tradition, the men and women of the choir will each have songs to share. Who will present their piece best?

MAY 2016

It is a gift to sing.

Audiences asked for a repeat of Ola Gjeilo’s Sunrise Mass, and we’re thrilled to be able to present it once again. Even more exciting is that the Master Singers will have a new CD featuring this choral delight accompanied by strings and percussion.

To top things off, we’ll perform world premiere works by Ken Medema, Jared Pierce, and Larry Shackley. We’ll also present new works by Joni Jensen, Stacey Gibbs, and many others.
