CALL TO SINGERS
The Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale and professional Concert Orchestra are excited to begin

musical settings by Morten Lauridsen and Samuel Barber, “Sanctus” by award winning composer,
Chris A. Bowman, carols from around the world, and more!
Performances are scheduled for December 13 and 14.
Vocalists 17 years and older are invited to join the Chorale to prepare for this special holiday event. Chorale rehearsals will begin on Tuesday, September 9th. New singers should be at the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 2672 Janin Way, Solvang, at 7:15 p.m. for a brief audition. Returning members may come at 7:30 p.m. Rehearsals are every Tuesday from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. with two or

The Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale has “brought music to life” to the Valley for 37 years. Last spring, the Chorale and Orchestra presented Mozart’s Requiem in D to 700 concert goers and on July 4th, the Chorale and it’s All Star Band entertained the Valley with Americana favorites. Chris A Bowman, an accomplished director and composer, has directed the Chorale for the last 18 years.
