Welcome.

Thank you for visiting our website. It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our 46th concert season. We love sharing the experience of extraordinary choral music with you, and are grateful for the support of both new and returning audience members.

Each concert this season is a cause for celebration, and I’m thrilled with the variety and quality of the programming all season long. Our engagement with the music we love is not complete without your participation as an active and attentive audience.  We look forward to seeing you.

Back Bay Chorale shares the power of voice, advancing the spirit of community.

Founded in 1973, the Back Bay Chorale is a 120-member auditioned chorus. For nearly 50 years, we have drawn talented singers from the greater Boston area to perform a repertoire that ranges from the Renaissance to the contemporary.
 

In addition to our annual concert series, the Chorale also shares music throughout the Boston community through our Bridges program. 
 

Musician, minister, and social activist Larry Hill founded the Back Bay Chorale  at Boston’s Church of the Covenant to create a musical ministry that would bring meaning to both singers and their audience.
 

In the years since Hill’s death in 1989, the Chorale has continued to grow in stature and is now regarded as one of Boston’s premier nonprofessional choruses.
