Join the Masterwork Chorale!
We are a non-denominational, community choral group with approximately 120 singers, which joins forces with the Chancel Choir to sing our choral concerts at First Church. We perform two major concerts a year—early December and in the spring. Selected musicians from the San Diego Symphony Orchestra accompany our performances.
