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.
