Rehearsals are Tuesdays, 7:30-9:30 p.m. at the Davis Arts Council, 445 N. Wasatch Dr., Layton, just north of the Layton Police Department offices, near the Kenley Amphitheatre.

The Davis Master Chorale, organized eight years ago, is a non-profit community choir based in Davis County but draws members from Salt Lake to Ogden. The group has been featured in the Temple Square Concert Series, St. George Choral Music Festival, Days of 47 Devotional, and many other occasions. They also perform concerts throughout the year. James A. Johnson is music director and conductor.
Choir members have other learning opportunities, such as a recent workshop conducted with the chorale by Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir. This group is an internationally recognized, Grammy-nominated ensemble that researches and performs songs from the historical beginnings of African-American music. They recently performed for a large crowd at the Kenley Amphitheater.
The Davis Master Chorale attracts 60 to 75 members and has three seasons each year -- fall, spring, and summer. The fall season will culminate in Christmas concerts at Temple Square, the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, and Davis High School, with others possible. The spring concert will include a performance of the Brahms Requiem.
The chorale's purpose is to provide an affordable organization for anyone wanting to sing music ranging from popular selections to classics. Choir dues are $15 for the fall season. For more information call Paul Day, 543-2556; Pat Russell, 544-4155; Marilyn Stanger, 544-9508.
