One City Choir
The One City Choir, launched in the summer of 2012, is a large symphonic choir comprising committed and passionate singers from all of Boston’s 20 neighborhoods and many surrounding communities. The choir takes its name from the words of Boston civic leader Hubie Jones, who has advocated that “Boston can be one city through arts and culture.”
The choir, sponsired by the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, will be featured on Italian Night, Wednesday, August 5 at 7:00 pm (rain date, Thursday, August 6). The choral portion of the program will feature famous opera choruses by Verdi, Puccini, and Mascagni.
All singers in the Boston area who have experience singing in choirs are invited to join the One City Choir. The One City Choir will be joined by the Back Bay Chorale, and by a children’s choir from the North End Music and Performing Arts Center. Scott Allen Jarrett, music director of the Back Bay Chorale, will prepare the choir, and Landmarks Orchestra Music Director Christopher Wilkins will conduct the performance.
