About the Monadnock Chorus Chamber Singers

The Monadnock Chorus Chamber Singers was formed in 1999.  The group is made up of sixteen to twenty singers - four-five for each voice part.  The MCCS is small and mobile enough to perform in venues which cannot accommodate the larger chorus, such as local churches, town bandstands, assisted living facilities and various municipal buildings.  Both the Monadnock Chorus and its Chamber Singers have the following goals:

  • to educate our audiences about choral music
  • to encourage the community to attend our concerts
  • to provide the community with the opportunity to enjoy great works of choral music performed live in their own area
  • to become a more active part of the business community in the Monadnock Region

     

The Monadnock Chorus is grateful for the 1999 Pride Award, given by the Chambers of Commerce in Jaffrey and Rindge. This grant was used to start the Monadnock Chorus Chamber Singers. The Monadnock Chorus Chamber Singers performs a varied repertoire - classical, sacred, madrigals, spirituals, contemporary - both a cappella and accompanied. If you are interested in having this chorus perform for your organization, contact Sandy Jackson by e-mail via the chorus' general email address or by phone at 603-525-6660.
