Since its inception in the spring of 1985, Atlanta Master Chorale has grown from an enthusiastic volunteer choir to a nationally-recognized ensemble of auditioned singers that is known equally for its technical excellence and its unparalleled choral artistry. It has been an amazing transformation, born of vision, effort, and, most importantly, a shared commitment to performing timeless choral music. Throughout its development, Atlanta Master Chorale has maintained a consistent focus on celebrating and performing music drawn from the entire spectrum of choral music. Initially dedicated solely to the performance of a cappella choral literature, Atlanta Master Chorale has since expanded its repertoire to include accompanied major and minor works as well as the traditional a cappella repertoire. Each year, audiences in Atlanta and around the southeast are treated to a growing number of concerts by Atlanta Master Chorale, each of which exemplifies an important aspect of Atlanta Master Chorale’s mission of “lifting the spirit through choral artistry.”
