About The Chorale

The Metropolitan Chorale is a 100-voice auditioned chorus, and one of Boston’s premier vocal ensembles. Our emphasis on culturally significant programming, combined with excellence in performance, yields a unique artistic contribution to the city of Boston. The chorus is led by Music Director Lisa Graham, four Artists-in-Residence, and an assistant conductor/collaborative pianist.

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

Under the leadership of Lisa Graham, the Chorale’s membership has grown in size to 100 members who hail from communities throughout the 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.”
