Premier Choir volunteers at Pine Street Inn!

On Saturday, December 6th, a collection of singers from the Premier Choir gathered at Pine Street Inn, New England's leading resource for homeless men and women, to help wrap holiday gifts for Pine Streets residents. "We recognize how much the Boston community supports us as a choir, so I think its important that we give back to our community and volunteer when we can" said Casey Accardi, a PC singer.

Singers enjoyed getting into the holiday spirit and bonding with each other as well as giving an impromptu student-lead performance of "Carol of the Bells" and "Keep Your Lamps" for fellow gift wrappers.

Later in the day, PC singers gathered at BCC central for a singer-planned workshop with Samaritans. They found the experience to be very beneficial and helped them to grow more in touch with themselves and with the choir community.

Concert Choir and YME performance at the MFA!

On Wednesday December 3rd, BCC's Concert Choir and Young Men's Ensemble performed at the Museum of Fine Arts as a part of the "MFA for the Holidays" performance series.
Museum-goers enjoyed free-admission to the museum as well as the joy of hearing BCC sing some classic holiday tunes as well as some of their regular repertiore.

BCC gathered in the lower level of the museum and did a quick warm-up and practice and then lined up to perform. After singing "Tzosholoza" from the escalator, CC and YME circled the upper rotunda of the museum and sang a few songs from that location.

Singers noted that the acoustics were amazing and were thrilled by how big their sound became in the space, especially on the song, "Circles of Motion". They then moved into Old European Master Paintings room and completed their set of songs. The audience, comprised of listeners of all ages, was very enthusiastic and engaged in the singing, and post-performance, many were interested to know when they could next see BCC perform! Overall, it was a great day for CC and YME.
