Founded in 1935, the Newburyport Choral Society (NCS) is one of the largest community choral societies in New England, and one of the nation’s oldest choral groups. Comprised of approximately 125 singers from more than thirty communities in eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, we are a non-auditioned Chorus that range in age from high school students to retirees that hold diverse musical backgrounds.
During this challenging time, we are proud that we are able to continue our 86-year history as a choral organization.
A comment I heard from renowned Canadian choral conductor Kellie Walsh has inspired us over the past few months: “If choirs are only about making music, they will die. But if they are about teaching and learning, growing, connecting, community, and cultural exploration, they will thrive.”
Even though it remains unsafe for us to sing together, NCS has been able to work hard so as to thrive.
