Sierra Master Chorale Overview

“We love to Sing!”













Choral Director & Conductor Alison Skinner


About the Chorale:

The 75-voice auditioned chorale was founded in 2008 and has established a reputation for providing outstanding performances to very enthusiastic audiences. SMC holds the distinction of being one of a very few high-caliber community choruses throughout the United States that always performs with the InConcert Sierra Orchestra comprised of local and regional professional musicians.

Vision Statement:

The Sierra Master Chorale is an auditioned group of men and women who perform choral music of such wide variety and with such high quality that both the listening audience and the performers share a sense of great enjoyment and pride.

The concert last night was magical!
My heart was quieted and filled, moved to tears with the Esurientes.
Tender and so well executed…
With kindness and hope, Nancy Z. (2019)
Tonight’s ICS Christmas concert was the most wonderful one I have attended here! The selections were fabulous (and probably difficult), the choir and orchestra were tops, and the directing was a delight to observe! Thank you for all the work you have given to this and for the very special concert!  Nancy J (Holiday, 2019)
With the phenomenal concert Saturday still in our hearts and minds, plus watching the Kennedy Center Awards the next night – this particular Holiday Weekend will always be in my list of “the top Five” in my many years!!!   Thank you EVERYONE who made this all possible!!   Aileen James (2019)


I’m from NY, I lived in LA and Sweden and near SF. I sang at the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church in LA in the 80s and we even teamed up with the LA Gay Men’s Chorus. My singing teacher sang with the LA Opera…I’m not a professional musician at all but I know fine music and well rehearsed choral groups when I see and hear them! The master Chorale and orchestra are outstanding… (Kate D. – 2018)
