Current repertoire includes Schutz, Barber, Robert Lepley settings of Rilke, and Halsey Stevens settings of Campion. Please let Ellen know you are attending with 24 hours notice so she can have music ready for you.
Our generous and talented supporters contribute to the chorus in a variety of ways: 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!

If you've had a good experience with Three Rivers Chorus, you can help that goodness grow simply by letting the people in your life know about it.
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.
The chorus was founded in Metrowest Boston in 2010.
It was named for three local connected waterways:
the Assabet, Concord, and Sudbury rivers.

The program, For Love Is Strong As Death, includes works by Brahms, Britten, Hovhaness, Lauridsen, and Monteverdi. This event marked the closing of the Cambridge campus of Episcopal Divinity School. It celebrates the grace of love that transcends boundaries and abides through change. The widely varied repertoire invites listening for the echoes of what has been and attuning ourselves to what we most long for and do not yet see, fully present in the miraculous, unique, and irreplaceable moment by moment Now.
