We are a 90 member Boston area choral group with a broad repertoire of choral music.
Touching the heart
Commonwealth Chorale is dedicated to creating musical performances that delight and touch the heart of both audience and performers alike by bringing to life the expressive power and intent of the composer. We will not have done our job if you leave a CC concert unmoved.
Downtown quality and suburban convenience
Now in its 41st season (the 37th under the inspiring musicianship and committed leadership of Music Director David Carrier), Commonwealth Chorale has developed the reputation as one of the finest choruses in the Boston area. We aim to offer performances of high quality at affordable prices in convenient suburban locations with free parking.
Commonwealth Chorale presents both beloved masterpieces and new works we frequently commission. We have taken on challenging works that non-professional groups rarely tackle, such as Poulenc's Mass in G and Milhaud's Psaumes. We believe in growing and stretching musically, and we think it's fun.
Commonwealth Chorale takes pride in its frequent collaborations with prestigious soloists and orchestras. We have performed with the Boston Philharmonic and the New Philharmonia. During the 2009-2010 season we were invited to perform with the Boston Civic Symphony and shared the stage at Sanders Theatre with the Zamir Chorale in March 2009. As Newton Choral Society, we have sung at Symphony Hall in Boston, and Carnegie Hall in New York.
Commonwealth Chorale attracts singers from the greater Boston metropolitan area. Commonwealth Chorale members are extraordinarily dedicated to the group and volunteer to take on the many duties that keep the chorus growing and thriving.
