Master Chorus Eastside seeks new voices

Master Chorus Eastside, formerly the Issaquah Chorale, is holding auditions in all sections for its 2008-2009 season.

All interested singers must have choral music experience and basic music reading ability. For an audition appointment, call the Master Chorus Eastside office at (425) 392-8446. More information on the chorus can be found on the web at

Now beginning its 18th season, Master Chorus Eastside exists to share the power of choral music to inspire and bring joy.

The chorus will appear with the renowned Prime Voci from Seattle Girls’ Choirs in March, perform Haydn’s finest oratorio, The Creation, in an innovative semi-staged version in May, and conclude with its popular All-American Independence Celebration in Issaquah’s historic Pickering Barn in June.

MCE performs mainly on the Eastside, but has appeared in Benaroya Hall, throughout western Washington, and in numerous performances on the Argosy Christmas ship. The chorus has been invited to participate in the Haydn International Choral Festival in Vienna next July. All concerts feature informative commentary and historical information presented by Artistic Director and Conductor Linda Gingrich.
