  • A Grand Hall for Music 4pm to 12:42pm @ Cornerstone Center for the Arts 520 E Main, Muncie, IN 47305
    Cost: $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, free for children and students

    Join Cornerstone Center for the Arts and Masterworks Chorale for the A Grand Hall for Music concert and listen while the building comes to life. Masterworks and Cornerstone will collaborate for a new traveling musical experience showcasing Cornerstone’s beautiful architecture and choral pieces reflective of the design eras. The performances begin at 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 23 at Cornerstone located in downtown Muncie at 520 E. Main Street.

    A Grand Hall for Music will begin in the Colonnade Room on the first floor of Cornerstone. Masterworks invites guests to enjoy musical selections inspired by the architectural features throughout the building, and it will conclude with a finale and reception in the Grand Hall.

    The former Masonic Temple was designed in the Gothic Revival architectural style by prominent local architect, Cuno Kibele. Much of the building’s original interior and exterior character has remained unaltered during the building’s over 90 years of use. The building, now known as Cornerstone, was built in the 1920s as the third Masonic Temple in Muncie to meet the needs of the growing organization. The building became an arts center in the late 1990s and now thrives as Cornerstone Center for the Arts, known for its arts education and as a special events destination.

    The performances will be led by Masterworks’ Artistic Director, Andrew Crow, and will feature the organization’s 60-member choir. The University Choral Union, a mixed choir group of nearly 100 Ball State students, also will perform a variety of repertoire. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and free for children and students.

    Tickets are available to purchase in advance at munciemasterworks.org, at Cornerstone’s second floor desk from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday or by calling 765-286-5347, ext. 22. They will also be available for purchase at the door.

  • Middletown, USA 7:30pm to 12:42pm @ Muncie Central High School 801 N. Walnut St., Muncie, IN 47305

    Commemorating Indiana’s bicentennial, Masterworks Chorale presents a world premiere musical event celebrating Muncie as:

    Middletown, USA

    7:30 p.m., Saturday May 14, 2016, at Muncie Central High School, 801 N. Walnut St., Muncie, IN 47305.  

    For this occasion, Masterworks Chorale commissioned composer Marjorie Rusche to write a new cantata for chorus and orchestra.

    Middletown Chronicles: The Making of Middletown, America, gives musical voice to native voices of Muncie’s past and present: words drawn from letters, diaries, books and interviews of Muncie residents.

    The audience will experience Muncie as Middletown through music, spoken words, and visual images provided by The Center for Middletown Studies and the Archives and Special Collections, Ball State University Libraries.

    Masterworks Chorale has also partnered with Motivate Our Minds to share the Middletown history and experience with a group of local students. On May 14 these 4th and 5th graders will exhibit their own art in response to their perceptions of Middletown.

    In order to ensure that the “Middletown USA” event is accessible to all members of our community, tickets are free.
