Three Rivers Chorus, Ellen Oak, artistic director, is a small, auditioned SATB ensemble. Oak's holistic, body-centered approach to singing integrates deep respect for the individual and high expectations for the group. Collaboration with other musicians, visual and performing artists, and community groups is integral to our music-making. Our adventurous repertoire, while rooted in the western classical tradition, ranges widely and often includes surprising juxtapositions and resonances. We practice on Wednesday evenings in Arlington, MA, in a location with easy access to Route 2, public transit, and plentiful free parking.
Two sonic glimpses of the chorus:
Rehearsals for our spring performances begin March 25. We practice Wednesdays 7:00-9:15p.m. at Christ Church, 750 Main Street, Waltham. Visitors are welcome at rehearsal without auditioning. You can audition at any time before March 25 by appointment with Ellen Oak (click Contact); or after rehearsal on March 25. Please contact us in advance to confirm date and location of rehearsal. For more information please click on Auditions. We look forward to making music with you soon!
Our generous and talented supporters contribute to the chorus in a variety of ways: word of mouth networking, concert production, graphic design, community relations, book-keeping, grant writing, publicity, and making practice mp3's are a few examples. If you'd like to get involved with great people in an exciting venture, tell us about your gifts and interests, and we'll be delighted to partner with you. Every effort, no matter the size, helps us thrive. Thank you!
