Chorus Eclectic

A New Year, A New Name

Founded as the Pacific Masterworks Chorus about a decade ago under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Greg Lyne, the chorus has moved away from performing large masterworks and now explores varied song literature featuring music from multiple cultures and a mixture of musical styles.

Currently beginning his sixth year with us, director James Toland leads the chorus in learning and performing a wide range of music from past and present; and from classical, folk, and modern styles. We've wrestled with new languages, including Estonian, Japanese, German, French, and Gaelic, and we continue to stretch our imagination and abilities by presenting new works by living composers. We seek repertory that is fun, challenging, exciting, and interesting.

All these different aspects of our work have led us to a decision to change our name. After more than a year of thought and many suggestions, we have come up with a name that better reflects who we are, what we do, and where we want to go. We're the same chorus with the same devotion to singing wonderful music.

We come from all over the Bay Area to make music together; it's one of the purest joys people can share. We look forward to entertaining you and celebrating the great gift that is music, for many years to come, as Chorus Eclectic.
