The Choir at First Church Boston

The Choir of First Church in Boston is a twelve-member professional ensemble of singers, which includes composers, instrumentalists, and actors from Boston’s thriving musical community. As a church choir based in a Unitarian Universalist congregation, the choir occasionally sings thematically related secular music along with music from a variety of sacred traditions. The choir’s repertoire ranges from the High Renaissance through collaborations with living composers. Recent multi-movement works have included Philip Glass’ Three Songs for Choir a capella, Paul Creston’s Leaves of Grass, Op. 100, Larry Thomas Bell’s Emersonia, Op. 113 (premier), and Bill Heigen’s CX Choral Cycle (premier).

Members of the congregation are strongly encouraged to contact the Music Director about volunteer opportunities.
