Elgin Master Chorale Presents a Virtual Performance of Contemporary Music of Hope
and Joy with a few Classical Twists along the Way.

Come join us for an evening of songs by modern musical poets – Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, Parton, Nash, and others. Their melodies and lyrics will uplift and bring joy as we look to put the dark clouds behind and anticipate blue skies ahead. Here Comes the Sun serves as the coda for Elgin Master Chorale’s 2020-21 season, one that began with apprehension and now promises better days to come.

 

News and Announcements

EMC DIVERSITY STATEMENT

Great music comes from people from all backgrounds and cultural experiences and has the power to connect and unite. Yet, a musical landscape exists today that does not reflect that rich tapestry. EMC acknowledges this and pledges a continual effort to address and sow the seeds of inclusion through an intentional outreach in our search for talent in our membership, patronage, board leadership, and through a repertoire that widens our musical lens and reflects the world around us. It is our desire that EMC’s energized focus and unswerving goals on diversity and inclusion ensures that our audiences and the communities we serve and engage, experience the magic and richness of a shared humanity from the music we present.
