Members and Audience
At 59 years old, the Monadock Chorus is the oldest chorus in all of Southern New Hampshire! Our 100-member, all volunteer community chorus and audiences span multiple generations and musical experience. We perform large choral works that are usually not heard in a small town environment. Your support will help us carry this grand tradition into the future.
We have a proud history of reaching out to our community, beyond our annual concerts. Our goals for the 2017-2018 season and beyond are to continue to bring our engagement programs to the Monadnock area, and to eliminate participation costs for students who sing with us. Our auditioned chamber ensemble, the Monadnock Chorus Chamber Singers, is the centerpeice of our community engagement. For a minimal stipend, or in some cases for no charge, they give high quality performances in meeting houses, churches, nursing homes and other public venues.
