Friends of Bakersfield Master Chorale:

As events have so rapidly and unexpectedly developed there seems no question but that we must suspend the remainder of the season. This is deeply disappointing to our aesthetic sensibilities, but our sense of community is strengthened by the knowledge that we are doing the best we can for our patrons, sponsors, and especially our singers.

Our hope would be that we will be able to come back together sooner rather than later and that we will be able to share wonderful music together when we do.

All our very best, 

Dr. Robert Provencio, Music Director; Jerry Buzzell, President and the Board of Directors

Upcoming Concerts! Save the dates!

Greetings to all from the Bakersfield Master Chorale. We wanted to let you know that we will be having open rehearsals to welcome new folks to our group on January 8th, 2018 at the Blue Chapel of the First Assembly of God, 4901 California Ave., Bakersfield, CA. We would love to have all interested parties take this opportunity to join us and get involved with our group. We meet for rehearsals at the First Assembly of God church at 4901 California Ave, Bakersfield, CA from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM each Tuesday. The open rehearsal is a chance for people who would like to investigate the possibility of joining to sing with the Chorale, meet some of the members, and see what a rehearsal is like. There is no obligation. If you decide you want to join, auditions will be held immediately after the rehearsals. If you decide the Chorale isn’t for you, you can leave without auditioning. Auditions generally last about five minutes and do not require any special preparation. You do not need to have something prepared to perform. We currently have two openings in our Young Artist Development Program and will have additional information on our website soon. www.BakersfieldMasterChorale.org We look forward to seeing you at our open rehearsals and are excited to welcome all those who have a love for music and bringing the arts to our community!

Bakersfield Master Chorale’s Young Artist Development Program participants Karissa Lystrup – accompanist, Melissa Nixon – conductor, and Elizabeth Provencio – conductor, put the Chorale through their paces on Tuesday night rehearsing the Requiem of W.A. Mozart, while exploring romantic and historically-informed approaches to the work. All three of these outstanding young artists did a wonderful job maneuvering the intricate passages with grace and confidence. The Chorale will be the guest artist of the Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra at their next concert, November 14th, performing Mozart’s Requiem. For more information and tickets, visit bsonow.org.
