Music for A Cause Partnership

     The 2013-2014 season marks the 35th anniversary of the Masterworks Choir.  Striving to fulfill our mission, the Choir begins an outreach initiative entitled, Music for A Cause.  At each of the three major concerts, Masterworks will partner with a local organization in order to highlight the excellent work they are doing in the community and region. 

     “With the size of our ensemble and the influence of our many supporters, we can have a positive impact on the organizations with which we partner,” said Dr. William Carswell, Music Director and Conductor of the Masterworks Choir.  “As a part of the artistic fabric of Florence,  we not only want to provide beautiful music to enrich our lives, but we also feel a responsibility to do what we can to improve our community.”

     The Masterworks Choir’s first
Music for A Cause
partner is the

                                                                                                  Pee Dee Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Assault. 

     During the recent 35th anniversary Christmas concerts, Dr. Carswell and the Choir highlighted the achievements and the challenges of the Coalition and provided the hundreds in attendance with tangible ways in which to support the ongoing work of the Coalition.  Ellen Hamilton, Executive Director of the Pee Dee Coalition, was in attendance and was recognized for over 25 years of dedicated service to the region.
