About Us

Monadnock Chorus, founded in 1959, is fortunate to be part of the vital arts community that encompasses the Monadnock region. Our core mission is to provide choral singing opportunities for area residents. Key to our long term success is the promotion of choral singing as an art form among residents of all ages. We prepare and perform four ticketed concerts each year--two in December and two in the spring. A smaller choral ensemble, the Monadnock Chorus Chamber Singers, prepares and performs six or more concerts each year in different venues in the Monadnock Region.

Our Monadnock Summer Sing offers area residents the opportunity to participate in a public sing of a major choral work. Next summer, we’ll hold our 4th annual Summer Sing on August 22, 2018 at the Historic Meeting House in Francestown, and we will again offer area residents an opportunity to rehearse and perform selections from major choral works. See our website www.monadnock-chorus.org for more information and LIKE us on Facebook to see all upcoming events!

Our SING! program provides free memberships for students age 12-26 to sing with the Monadnock Chorus. Transportation to rehearsals is provided for students who need it. Interested applicants should contact us at monadnockchorus@gmail.com.

Monadnock Chorus is also committed to engaging with all 40 towns in the Monadnock region over time. If you are interested in hosting our large chorus for an open rehearsal or our Chamber Singers group for a performance in your neck of the woods, please contact us at monadnockchorus@gmail.com.
