About Chicago Master Singers
Inspiration | Dedication | Excellence | Community
Chicago Master Singers' vision is to grow a culture of inclusive, intergenerational ensemble singing through extraordinary musical experiences that lift the human spirit. Our mission is to inspire singers and audiences through personal connections and musical excellence.
Established in 1979, Chicago Master Singers (CMS) is an auditioned chorus of 100 volunteer singers from Chicago and suburban communities. The ensemble’s repertoire includes great choral works and new works by living composers. CMS performs unaccompanied, and also collaborates with professional instrumentalists and soloists. The chorus has international acclaim, having toured extensively throughout Europe for the past 30 years.
CMS has developed several outreach initiatives, including choral workshops featuring outstanding clinicians, community engagement with seniors, and CMS University seminars.
