Choir of First Church Boston


The Choir of First Church in Boston is a professional ensemble made up of singer, composers, instrumentalists, and actors from Boston's thriving musical community. As a church choir based in a Unitarian Universalist congregation, the choir sings 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 Belll'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.
