About The Chorale

The Metropolitan Chorale of Brookline, formerly known as the Brookline Chorus, is a 100-voice auditioned chorus that is gaining a reputation as one of Metro Boston’s premier choral ensembles. Our emphasis on culturally significant programming, combined with excellence in performance, yields a unique artistic contribution to the Boston arts community. The chorus is led by Music Director Lisa Graham, four young Artists in Residence, and an assistant conductor/accompanist.

Our mission is to unite singers who share the joy of learning and performing a challenging traditional and contemporary repertoire, and to support the growth of music in our community. We strive for a quality of performance that challenges the chorus and attracts an appreciative and loyal audience.

LISA GRAHAM, Music Director

LISA GRAHAM is beginning her eleventh season as Music Director of The Metropolitan Chorale. Under her leadership, the Chorale’s membership has grown in size to 90 members who hail from communities throughout the greater-Boston area. Dr. Graham has shaped the Chorale’s programming to include contemporary, American, and lesser-known programs, alongside the masterworks of the repertory. She has enhanced the reputation and reach of the Chorale through collaborations with acclaimed vocalists and instrumentalists, as well as established composers of our day. In a review of her guest appearance conducting The Metropolitan Chorale and the Boston Pops last December, Broadway World praised Dr. Graham as “a spellbinding maestro, balletic in her direction … a great connection with her performers on stage.”
