The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, under the direction of music and artistic director James Bass, is an auditioned 150-voice volunteer chorus embracing a broad representation of singers from the Tampa Bay region. Founded in 1979 by Robert Summer and designated as the principal chorus of The Florida Orchestra, The Master Chorale is featured annually on The Florida Orchestra’s Masterworks season. In 1999, The Master Chorale was appointed as artist-in-residence at the School of Music at the University of South Florida. The organization serves Tampa Bay with a mission to advance the art of choral music. Since its inception in 1979, it has produced at least one major choral-orchestral work each year, ranging from Bach to Mahler and including commissions from contemporary composers. Other appointed conductors during the history of The Master Chorale include Daniel Moe, Duncan Couch, David Brunner, Joseph Holt, Jo-Michael Scheibe, and Richard Zielinski, and with conductors including Stefan Sanderling, Jahja Ling, Robert Shaw, John Nelson, Julius Rudel, Sir Colin Davis, and Sir David Willcocks.
