Their singers transcend social barriers in a celebration of shared humanity and love of music. Through intensive choral training and high-profile public performance experience – locally, throughout the U.S. and around the world – they learn discipline, develop leadership skills, and proudly represent the city of Boston as ambassadors of harmony.
