Come Sing with Us!

The links below will allow you to hear about us from the members themselves.  

The Commonwealth Chorale is a warm and inclusive community.  We are eager to welcome new members who are looking for a choral home.

                                      

   

 

   

As a community-based chorus, we take music making seriously, constantly striving to improve as an ensemble and to achieve ever-higher levels of musicianship.

Commonwealth Chorale rehearses most Tuesday nights (7:30–10:00) between September and May at Eliot Church, Centre and Church Streets, Newton Corner. We encourage experienced amateur choral singers to consider auditioning.

We look for new members with voices that blend, good vocal technique, and well-developed musical skills. Auditions are approximately 10 minutes in length and include a short, prepared piece (a short art song, aria, or section of a classical choral work), sight-reading, pitch matching, intervals and scales. Auditions are held in September and January.

Please contact us if you think Commonwealth Chorale may be right for you. Fill out this brief questionnaire (link) and our membership chairman will follow-up with you.  If you have questions, you can email [link] or call 617-364-3697.
