Join us under the direction of Dr. Cory Alexander as we explore the music that Leonardo da Vinci would have heard during his life in northern Italy. Marking the 500th year since Leonardo’s death, we will explore music by Leonardo’s contemporaries and compare it with music by composers of our own time.
(And if you are interested in singing with us, check out the Summer Sing section on our About Us page for rehearsal dates and time.)

The Dawn of Spirit & Light
The Gainesville Master Chorale, accompanied by orchestra and guest soloist Nate Pence, presented works from two of the most popular composers of our time, Dan Forrest and John Rutter. Dan Forrest’s Lux: The Dawn From On High (2018) was a beautiful work exploring various facets of Light (Lux) in texts ranging for ancient scripture to modern secular love poetry. John Rutter’s Feel the Spirit (2001) presented a set of seven well-known African-American spiritual arrangements, indicative of the musical style of George Gershwin.
The Gainesville Master Chorale was pleased to again join with the UF Concert Choir and the UF Symphony Orchestra in presenting the annual Sounds of the Season holiday concert.
The 2018 concert was a celebration of 200 years of Silent Night.
The performance was aired live on WUFT-TV. Click below for a link to the concert.
We are very happy to hear from you!
