Masterworks Concert Chorale is a non-profit community choir based out of Murrysville, PA, east of Pittsburgh. We perform both sacred and secular music with the focus on uplifting and inspiring music of many genres.
Masterworks Concert Chorale (MCC) is an accomplished chorus of talented singers in the Greater Pittsburgh area. The chorale is dedicated to performing an outstanding classical and contemporary repertoire at the highest possible artistic level to provide audiences and members with an enriching and fulfilling musical experience.
MCC was formed in January 2004 by Milutin Lazich who served as Artistic Director until his retirement in November 2014. Former assistant conductor Snezana Lazich was chosen to become MCC’s new Artistic Director.
Drawing initially from the communities east of Pittsburgh, PA, the chorus has grown to include members from throughout Greater Pittsburgh. The MCC repertoire includes classical and contemporary masterpieces as well as noted selections from the American popular songbook. Masterworks Concert Chorale looks forward to presenting an interesting spectrum of entertaining and edifying musical works to our audiences.
