A note of thanks

from Scott Allen Jarrett, Artistic Director
"As I prepare for Monday's session focusing on this final chorus of Handel's  Messiah, my heart is full of gratitude for the Back Bay Chorale. It's a bleak time for arts and performing organizations across the country, but I hope you'll be inspired, as I have, by the updates we share here. Particular thanks to our wonderful staff and board who have redoubled their efforts to make this exceptional year such a success.

And to our many supporters and contributors....

THANK YOU for the signal of support and for the good work your gifts make possible. Despite our distance, the Back Bay Chorale is still advancing the spirit of community through the power of our voice."

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.
