Three Rivers Chorus, Ellen Oak, Artistic Director, is a small, auditioned SATB ensemble. 

Oak's holistic, body-centered approach to singing integrates

 deep respect for the individual and high expectations for the group. 

Collaboration with other musicians, visual and performing artists,

 and community groups is integral to our music-making. 

Our adventurous repertoire, while rooted in the western classical tradition,

 ranges widely and often includes surprising juxtapositions and resonances. 

The chorus was founded in Metrowest Boston in 2010. 

It was named for three local connected waterways:

the Assabet, Concord, and Sudbury rivers.

The program, For Love Is Strong As Death, includes works by Brahms, Britten, Hovhaness, Lauridsen, and Monteverdi. This event marked the closing of the Cambridge campus of Episcopal Divinity School. It celebrates the grace of love that transcends boundaries and abides through change. The widely varied repertoire invites listening for the echoes of what has been and attuning ourselves to what we most long for and do not yet see, fully present in the miraculous, unique, and irreplaceable moment by moment Now.
