The Master Singers of Milwaukee are excited to return this season to elevate the joy of
experiencing live choral music to the Milwaukee community. Last year, we were required to
rethink the way we engage with our community and audience members. A strong marketing
plan, fundraising campaign, and superior direction from Dr. Durlam allowed us to respond to
our communities’ needs and provide a more comprehensive live stream option for attending
concerts. As we navigate our commitment to providing high-quality experiences for all
audience members, we face a whole new set of challenges to ensure our in-person and virtual
concerts remain safe, enjoyable, and accessible. It is the generosity and support from donors
that will help to make this possible. Will you donate today to help choral music thrive in
How your contribution helped last year:
- Our roster has grown to nearly 90 members this year.
- We purchased our own audio and video equipment, allowing us to provide high-quality live streams of our concert performances going forward.
- Under the direction of Dr. Durlam, we have been performing an expansive and diverse repertoire, exposing both the singers and the community to the language, sounds, and artistry of numerous cultures around the world.
- Our last concert series this November saw a swell of attendance as we welcomed 430 patrons and an additional 100 collaborative participants, including a local high school and a collective of greater Milwaukee area church choirs.
In 2022-2023, your contribution will help us:
- Celebrate our 50th anniversary! Through the incredible generosity of several patrons, we will have three works commissioned exclusively for the MSM.
- Highlight the history and culture of our incredible community of singers.
- Create more community relationships. We hope to achieve a deeper connection with our community by collaborating with more performing artists in Milwaukee.
The mission of the Master Singers of Milwaukee to perform extraordinary music has always
been made possible primarily because of generous community members like you. Your support
is a key factor in ensuring that the audiences in southeastern Wisconsin will be delighted and
educated about music for many years to come.
Thank you for supporting the MSM and the future of choral music.
With our deepest gratitude,
Janet Bashirian, Board President
