Who We Are


The Master Chorale of Flagstaff (MCF) has been bringing exceptional vocal performance into the heart of northern Arizona since 1977, showcasing a wide variety of musical styles, traditions, and innovations. Comprised of adult singers across many occupations from Flagstaff and surrounding communities, our award-winning chorus is a leader in musical collaboration. 


Recognizing the value of music as a healing, unifying, and educational tool, the Master Chorale draws from the experiences of the performers, the surrounding community, and global influences and mindsets. Our repertoire reflects the value of music as both a constant and constantly evolving entity, spanning from historical choral treasures to music by underrepresented composers that engages with contemporary concerns and causes. By joining in song with long-cherished ensembles such as the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra and the vocal and instrumental musicians of Northern Arizona University, as well as budding performers from Flagstaff’s K-12 schools, each concert is crafted to move audiences to joy, heartfelt reflection, and even action. 


The Master Chorale of Flagstaff auditions new singers each semester and sustains more than seventy members annually. Every musical experience is made possible by countless people. We are grateful to enjoy inspiring collaborations with musical and interdisciplinary partners made possible by the support of donors, sponsors, and the Flagstaff community. We foster a culture of an actively working Board of Directors, comprised of volunteers, and gratefully share music with regular and new audience members. 


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.
