SUPPORT THE INDEPENDENT
SAN LUIS OBISPO MASTER CHORALE
San Luis Obispo Master Chorale is the only 100-voice countywide community chorus that features major works for large chorus with full orchestra. Established in 1984 in collaboration with Cuesta College, the organization recently established itself as an independent non-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt program.
This fall the Chorale will perform its final two concerts associated with Cuesta College: “An Evening in Vienna” on November 18, featuring Beethoven’s joyous Mass in C, Brahms’ Ziegeunerlieder (Gypsy Songs) and the great “Champagne Chorus” from Strauss’ popular opera Die Fledermaus. Then, on December 15, our offering to the community will be the annual “Sing-along Messiah.”
On May 20, 2018, the San Luis Obispo Master Chorale will perform its first entirely independent concert, featuring California resident Dr. Ron Kean’s newly composed multi-media work entitled The Journey of Harriet Tubman—based on the life of this extraordinary woman in American history, and Johannes Brahms’ powerful A German Requiem.

The board of directors of the Chorale is now in the process of setting up business: a bank account, liability insurance, appropriate staff, etc., to go out on its own beginning January 1, 2018. The Master Chorale is grateful that Cuesta College has agreed to continue to administer the Thomas and Susan Davies Master Chorale Endowment.
We would like to encourage our audience and the larger community to join with us as we make this transition. Your tax-deductible donations will allow us to meet the expenses associated with engaging a full orchestra, soloists, conductor and concert promotion. Your generosity will enable San Luis Obispo Master Chorale to continue to provide the best in choral/orchestral music and guarantee our future.
The individuals and entities that give $5,000 or more any time from now through May 20, 2018, will be listed as San Luis Obispo Master Chorale Founders in all future concert programs. There is no better time than now to help pioneer this exciting new direction for our Master Chorale. Whatever amount you choose will be greatly appreciated as we start this new venture.
