A Boston tradition for more than 58 years, the 120- voice Masterworks Chorale presents several concerts each year at Sanders Theatre. The 1999-2000 season is Allen Lannom's 48th with the Chorale. The chorus, which includes gifted and versatile singers from over forty cities and towns throughout New England, traditionally performs well-known classical works, but it has also presented Boston-area premieres of compositions by Bergsma, Hindemith, Kabalevsky, Penderecki, Starer, Ward, and local composer Lawrence Wolfe.

The Chorale originated the idea and held the first-ever Messiah Sings and Summer Sings in New England. The Chorale was the centerpiece for the Great Woods Festival Chorus in 1986 and 1987, appearing with the Pittsburgh Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas. It has received Boston Magazine's prestigious "Best of Boston" award, and has twice received awards from the Association for Performing Arts.

Other highlights of the Masterworks Chorale's first half-century include performances with the Boston Ballet, at Leonard Bernstein's 65th birthday celebration, and in Mexico with the Mexico City Philharmonic Orchestra. During the summer of 1994, the Chorale presented concerts to capacity crowds in cities and towns throughout Spain.
