The Stow Chorus is an all-volunteer, open group. Auditions are not required. Principles of good singing and musicianship are realized through rehearsals that are challenging and fun. The Stow Chorus is a member of the Greater Boston Choral Consortium and the Central Massachusetts Choral Consortium.
Established in 1973, the Stow Chorus (formerly the Stow Festival Chorus) has been performing in three annual concerts since 1980. Please see our Past Seasons Page to read the full listing of our concerts since 2000. And for previous concerts a pdf link is available on that page.
Artistic Director Barbara Jones, a graduate of Wells College and Brown University, has directed the Stow Chorus and Orchestra since 1979. She studied choral conducting at Westminster Choir College under Frauke Haussman, Joseph Flummerfelt and others. She studied orchestral conducting with Harold Farberman at the Conductor’s Institute at Bard College and with Helmut Rilling at the prestigious Oregon Bach.
