We have exciting news:  the Hampshire Choral Society will resume singing on Tuesday, September 6, 2020!

Rehearsals will be at South Congregational Church, 1066 South East Street, Amherst, MA 01002 until the Northampton Senior Center is able to accommodate us again.

We hope you will be able to join us for Vivaldi’s Gloria, along with his Credo, in preparation for our concert on Sunday, November 20, 2022, 3:00 pm at Abbey Chapel, Mt. Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA. We will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra, and the Young People’s Chorus will perform as well.

We are very excited to be singing again, and we want everyone to feel as safe as possible. Proof of vaccination will be required, but masks will not, although you are welcome to use one if you prefer.

It is a great help to us if you register in advance using this link, which will become active at 5 pm on August 12.

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.
