The Keene Chorale



For its first full concert series since 2019, The Keene Chorale presented parts I, II, and III of G. F. Handel’s Messiah, directed by Maestro Cailin Marcel Manson. We were joined by NERO, the New England Repertory Orchestra, and soloists Evangelia Leontis, soprano, Megan Roth, mezzo soprano, Joshua Collier, tenor, and Nicholas Tocci, baritone.

Singing with The Keene Chorale is OPEN TO ALL
We are a welcoming non-auditioned chorus, and our members include singers with a wide range of musical and life experience, from high schoolers to octogenarians. It’s not unusual for folks who haven’t sung since high school or college, or who really just like to sing, to become part of our musical family. Not everyone comes to us reading music. As long as you can carry a tune and learn to stay on pitch, that’s fine with us. If you’re not sure if you are a soprano or alto, tenor or bass, we’ll help you figure it out.

We all begin each semester at the same place: the beginning!
As a new member you can expect to feel welcomed the first time you walk in the door. We know we have a (well deserved) reputation for musical excellence and exciting performances, but we do not consider ourselves elitist or exclusive. Performance excellence comes from our shared journey each semester, from the hard work (and fun) under the leadership of Music Director Cailin Marcel Manson. Along the way we learn quite a bit about our voices and the pieces we perform, and have a really good time doing it, starting with the first note of our warmup!
