One City Choir
The choir will perform Giuseppe Verdi’s Messa da Requiem on Wednesday, August 1 at 7:00 PM (rain date, Thursday, August 2) at the DCR’s Hatch Memorial Shell.
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 23 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.”
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 again be joined by the Back Bay Chorale. Scott Allen Jarrett, music director of the Back Bay Chorale, will prepare the choir, and Christopher Wilkins will conduct the performance.
Music will be provided at the first rehearsal, and will be available for download at a later date.
Rehearsals are as follows: Monday, June 25, Tuesday, June 26, Tuesday, July 24, Thursday, July 26, Sunday, July 29, Monday, July 30, Tuesday, July 31, Wednesday, August 1.
