Simmons College Concert Choir

Simmons College Concert Choir

The Simmons College Concert Choir is a singing group that performs formal concerts twice a year (Fall and Spring semesters) and at various college events including Commencement, Honors Convocation, Accepted Student Brunch, and Family Weekend. The Concert Choir sings classical works, songs from the Simmons Song Book, Suffrage Songs, popular pieces and many multicultural compositions in a variety of languages. In alternate years, the Choir joins forces with other choirs in the Boston area and performs with the New England Philharmonic, Orchestra-in-Residence at Simmons College. Reading music is not required and we do not hold auditions, but members must be able to carry a tune and love to sing. All members of the Simmons community are invited to join: undergraduates, graduates, Dix Scholars, faculty and staff. The Choir rehearses once per week on the academic campus. The Music Director and conductor of the Concert Choir is Danica Buckley.
