Mission Statement

The Blacksburg Master Chorale will enrich the lives of its members and the New River Valley community by celebrating the tradition of choral music at its finest.

Our Values:

We place the highest value on:

➢   Excellence – robust repertoire, diligently rehearsed, and sung with ardor and care.

➢   Respect – governing our relationships with one another, our audience, and the musicians with whom we perform as well as our approach to the composers whose works we sing. 

➢   Collaboration – reaching out to new partners, sponsors, and music-lovers in pursuit of common goals.

➢   Diversity – welcoming a diverse membership and honoring music from a variety of cultural traditions.

➢   Inspiration – singing works that speak to the best in what makes us human and, in particular, inspiring and assisting the next generation of chorale singers.

Our Vision:

The Blacksburg Master Chorale will be the premier choral organization in the New River Valley, recognized by growing and loyal audiences because we:

➢     Produce interesting and varied performances that enrich the cultural life of the community.

➢     Are reliable and creative partners in collaborative efforts. 

➢     Operate an efficient and financially sound organization which continues to grow and evolve.
