Metropolitan Chorale of Brookline

Metropolitan Chorale of Brookline

Over the course of our 32 year history our mission has been to unite singers who share the joy of learning and performing a challenging traditional and contemporary repertoire, and to support the growth of music in our community. We strive for a quality of performance that challenges the chorus and attracts an appreciative and loyal audience.

Metropolitan Chorale of Brookline, formerly known as Brookline Chorus, is a 100-voice auditioned chorus that is gaining a reputation as one of Metro Boston’s premier choral ensembles. Our emphasis on culturally significant programming, combined with excellence in performance, yields a unique artistic contribution to the Boston arts community. The chorus is led by Music Director Lisa Graham, four young Artists in Residence and an assistant conductor/accompanist. Brookline Chorus had its first rehearsal with 16 singers in the summer of 1979 and its first full concert in the spring of 1980. It was founded as an initiative of the Brookline Music School, growing to over fifty members in its first year. In 1984, Anne Watson-Born took over the direction of the Chorus and remained for nine years. Watson-Born began a tradition of community involvement, including collaborations with the Brookline Arts Center, the Brookline Library, and the Coolidge Corner Theater. In 1993 William Cutter became Music Director. Cutter initiated many changes in the Chorus, moving it from an un-auditioned community chorus to an auditioned group of 80 voices. Scott All
