About the Manchester Singers
The Manchester Singers is a community chorus which began its first season in 2003. The chorus rehearses weekly in Manchester, MA and performs several concerts throughout Boston’s North Shore each year. There are presently 12 men and 28 women in the chorus who come from seven different North Shore towns. Membership in the chorus is open to all local singers.
Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings during each season from September to May. The chorus functions with a board of officers who are chorus members elected by the full group every two years. Several social events are scheduled each year to foster camaraderie among our members. We operate with an ethic that involves working diligently on the music within an enjoyable, sociable atmosphere. Our musical repertoire is diverse and our performances have achieved recognition in our local communities for their professional character. We invite you to attend our concerts and experience our commitment and enthusiasm for the joy of making music!
The chorus is directed by Fred Broer who holds a doctorate degree in music from Boston University and is administrative director of the North Shore Conservatory of Music at Endicott College. Dr. Broer is the former director of the Pro Musica Chamber Singers, and the Wakefield Festival Chorus, and has over 20 years of experience teaching music on the college level.
Rehearsals for the 2013 fall session begin with the first rehearsal on Monday, September 9, at 7:30 pm at the Congregational Chapel at 6 Chapel Lane in Manchester, MA.
