We are a group of singers from the greater Sacramento area who are dedicated to the advancement of choral music. Established in 1982, the singers delight, challenge, and inspire their audiences with seasons programmed to include premieres, classics, and a wide variety of musical periods and styles.
2019-2020 marks the 36th season under the name Sacramento Master Singers, and we have a three exciting and unique programs of music planned. The season begins with December’s favorite holiday program, followed by a concert in March that celebrates life. We will round out the season in May with a grand night of singing, featuring songs from musical theater.
Saturday, Mar 14th, at 7 pm
Sunday, Mar 15th, at 3 pm
From birth to death, through joy, loss, and sorrow, our March concerts will celebrate our lives, their benchmark moments, their ups and downs, with song. Patrons will be moved by pieces that range from the traditional Spiritual Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child to Szymko’s It Takes a Village. We have a slew of special features for this concert as well: talented guest soloists mezzo Buffy Baggott and baritone Omari Tau performing Robert Cohen’s haunting Alzheimer’s Stories with an instrumental ensemble and the choir, the World Premiere of an SMS commissioned piece by Ron Kean, and an exciting new venue as well: B Street’s Sofia Theatre. You’ll enjoy audience pleasers such as Fly to Paradise by Eric Whitacre and Cole Porter’s I Get a Kick Out of You arranged by Falker. It’s a concert brimming with musical delights that you won’t want to miss.

Rodgers & Hammerstein wrote it and Sacramento Master Singers will make it so: It’s a Grand Night for Singing. Our May program will include selections from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit show Hamilton including You’ll Be Back and Dear Theodosia, Stephen Sondheim’s No One Has Ever Loved Me from Passions, and Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat from Frank Loesser’s Guys and Dolls. These pieces represent but a few on the exciting program Artistic Director Ralph Hughes has planned. Join us – and bring your friends – for the glittering finale of our 2019-20 season.
