Masterworks Chorale - Founded in 2009, Masterworks Chorale, a Leeds-based touring choir draws its members from a wide area and has quickly established a reputation for fresh and distinctive performances, with the aim of providing the finest music in the finest venues. The choir endeavours to present all their concerts in interesting venues accessible to all with the focus always on the audience where they are committed to bringing the enthusiasm, intentions and feelings of their chosen composers into the hearts of the listeners through performance.

During 2019, Masterworks Chorale has performed a series of concerts in partnership with the Churches Conservation trust in the North of England bringing music to their fine redundant churches. In recent years, international tours have taken the choir to Prague, Liechtenstein, Venice, New York, Paris and Belgium where their performances have been met with great acclaim.
