Master Chorale is a volunteer choral group comprised of graduate and undergraduate students, as well as talented singers from the Chattanooga, Dalton and Sewanee communities. This chorus provides Chattanooga area singers and UTC music graduates with an advanced ensemble to participate in during the summer months when most of the civic choruses are taking time off. The choir usually focuses on one major work with organ and other smaller works depending on the year. Admission is open to any student through audition and normal registration process. However, admission is also open to any interested community singer with no registration necessary, just an audition.

J. Kevin Ford is in his tenth year as Director of Choral Activities at UTC. Previously Dr. Ford has taught and conducted at the high school and middle school level in Rossville, Georgia and has taught and conducted at The State University of New York at Potsdam’s Crane School of Music, as well as director of Choral Activities and Vocal Music Education at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He has been a guest conductor and adjudicator throughout the southeast, New York, and Canada.

His interview, the multi-year history of administrative non-performance (despite consistent repetitive funding), and a review of the organizational ... (click for more)
