The Greater Boston Intergenerational Chorus is a unique and vibrant community chorus. We’re wonderfully eclectic in both our makeup and our repertoire.

Our 85 singers come from 29 Boston-area towns, and we welcome all who love to sing from ages 10-110. We sing in many different musical styles – world, contemporary, traditional, jazz, classical, folk, novelty, gospel and more! Most importantly, we have a great time together. It’s a lovely, supportive community, a bit different from a typical chorus – not quite as demanding or formal as some, yet we reach a high level of musicality and artistry.
We sing pieces that are relatively easy to learn but sophisticated musically. We sometimes do some quick musical activity in the middle of our rehearsal that helps us get to know each other a bit.
Reading music is not required, but it helps. Some of our members are incredibly experienced and talented (and have sung semi-professionally) and some have only sung in the shower.
