About the Choir
The Masterworks Chorus at Spivey Hall provides an opportunity for all university students, faculty, staff, and community members to sing and perform a variety of choral music. This ensemble rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-7:30pm and performs each semester in Spivey Hall. The schedule of the Masterworks Chorus is designed to help ensemble members develop vocal and musical skills in an enjoyable environment with minimal constraints on time outside of rehearsal. The Masterworks Chorus combines high musical standards with an emphasis on building community and enriching the lives of chorus members and audiences alike. If you have questions about joining the ensemble, please contact Dr. Michiko Otaki at MichikoOtaki@clayton.edu.
