“The quality of the Chorale’s singing exudes confidence, insightful musical values, and—perhaps most importantly—an unabashed joy in singing. Any chance to experience the magic of the Metropolitan Chorale and Lisa Graham is to be treasured!”
Brookline Chorale's Valentine's Day story
By Laura Lovett
When Bethany Templeton Klem and her now-husband, Dennis Klem, sang together in the Metropolitan Chorale in Brookline, they stood directly across the room from each other. This gave them the perfect opportunity to make funny faces at each other and try to make the other laugh.
"Sometimes people next to Dennis got confused, and thought I was making faces at them," Templeton Klem laughed.
Years later the Klems have two young kids at home. Now they have to take turns trading off chorale seasons so someone can stay home with the kids, but Templeton Klem said the goofy tradition is something she really misses now.
The Klems are one of the more than a dozen couples who either met in the
chorale or participated in the chorale together. The group practices
every Tuesday from 7:30-10 p.m. at All Saints in Brookline. And love
seems to be in the air at these rehearsals.
