Hampshire Choral Society was ready to hit the reset button and return to normalcy this fall. We thought the worst of the COVID-19 crisis was behind us. Then, as the start of the Fall 2021 semester drew near, the Delta variant surged. There were breakthrough infections in fully vaccinated people. Indoor masking mandates came back.

It’s heartbreaking, but with everyone’s safety in mind, our 2021-22 season plans for in-person singing are on hold. Once conditions improve, we look forward to welcoming our current members and new singers.

The Hampshire Choral Society is proud to provide a unique place for both professional and amateur musicians to create music together. We are a community chorus based in Northampton, directed by Allan Taylor. Our singers come from throughout the Western Mass. and Connecticut areas, with a wide variety of musical backgrounds.

We rehearse on Tuesday evenings at the Northampton Senior Center. If you would like information about singing with the Hampshire Choral Society, please contact us at this address.
