Who We Are
Now in its 45th season, the Master Chorale of Flagstaff (MCF) is a community chorus comprised of all ages and occupations from Flagstaff and surrounding communities. Their common goal is to grow collectively as an organization and individually as musicians. The chorale rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7:15-9:30 PM on the Northern Arizona University Campus.
Auditions for MCF are held in August, January, and on an ongoing basis. Please check out our audition information and contact us if you are interested in joining us!
The MCF and its chamber choir, Arizona Mountain Chorale, sing a wide variety of music including major choral/orchestral works with the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra, historically significant works for chorus, Broadway show tunes, music from around the world, and new works by contemporary choral composers.
MCF has joined the NAU Shrine of the Ages Choir to perform with the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra or the Northern Arizona University Orchestra. Works presented include Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky, Brahms’ Schicksalslied, and Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna. MCF has also collaborated with the Flagstaff Community Band for the annual July 4th weekend "Land That I Love" concert.
Members of the Master Chorale have performed abroad in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, New Zealand, Australia, England, South Africa, Bulgaria, Turkey, Sweden, Estonia, and Latvia. In June 2022, members of the Master Chorale participated at the Dublin Choral Festival in St. Patrick’s Cathedral under the baton of Dr. Edith A. Copley.
