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. The unusual repertoire, while rooted in the western classical tradition, ranges widely and often includes surprising juxtapositions and resonances. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings in Arlington, MA, in a location with easy access to Route 2 and public transit, and plentiful free parking. Newcomers are welcome to visit a rehearsal without auditioning.
