Boston Choral Ensemble is a chamber choir that seeks to enrich the choral art through innovative programming, artistic excellence, and creative collaboration. BCE is dedicated to performing a wide range of repertoire with stylistic integrity, promoting new music, and educating its audience and singers.
Boston Choral Ensemble, known as BCE, was founded in 2001 as a choir that was smart, but not stuffy--a place for people who may not have chosen music as a profession to produce high-quality music and have fun in the process. They drew a repertoire from various time periods and traditions, both sacred and secular, and were committed to sharing that variety with the community. The choir started small, with 13 members performing in its first concert series in Gordon Chapel at Old South Church in Boston during March 2002.
Since then, the Ensemble has grown to close to 40 members and, under the direction of Dr. Andrew Shenton, embarks on its future seasons with a focused aesthetic and more creative energy than ever before. Join us and support BCE as it continues to write its history as one of New England's premier chamber choirs.
