In the aftermath of World War II, a group of Concord singers joined together to perform selections from Brahms' A German Requiem, considered by some to be the most comforting and humane requiem ever written. The 1946 performance, conducted by Nancy Loring, laid the cornerstone of the Concord Chorus. One hundred twenty-five singers came to join in music and fellowship.
Today, our 110+ members are drawn from Concord and surrounding towns. Our mission remains to present high-quality performances of works from diverse periods and to foster the musicianship of our members. This love of music and community provides the core upon which the Chorus has built, and sustained, a vibrant experience for both singers and audiences.
With roots firmly in Concord, the Concord Chorus has also performed at Symphony Hall in Boston, Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Sanders Theater in Cambridge, the Zeiterion Theater in New Bedford, Regis College, and many area churches.Our repertoire, in addition to many of the major choral works of the last three centuries, has included commissioned works by Dave Brubeck, Richard Cornell, Randall Thompson, Arlene Zallman and Michael Schachter.
The Concord Chorus has a long and proud history of musical accomplishment.
