2017–2018 Concert Season, Celebrating Our 43rd Year



Our April, 2018 concert is a performance of "Requiem for my Mother"

This special work by Stephen Edwards will bring together an intergenerational chorus of up 400 singers, including children's choruses and middle and high school choirs. The Requiem was written for an intergenerational chorus and is intended to be very accessible, technically and intellectually, to singers of all ages.



Supported in part by an Alfred Nash Patterson Grant from Choral Arts New England.
