Savoring the success of our Britten War Requiem collaboration in November… we now look forward to Schubert’s Mass in E-flat, which we’ll perform on Sunday the 25th of March at 3:00PM with full orchestra.

Sounds of Stow Chorus is an all-volunteer, self-auditioned group, open to anyone who can match pitch and learn their parts. Principles of good singing and musicianship are realized through rehearsals that are challenging and fun. Check out our Chorus Handbook. The Chorus is a member of the Greater Boston Choral Consortium and the Central Massachusetts Choral Consortium. Sounds of Stow Chorus & Orchestra is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Sounds of Stow Chorus, in collaboration with several Worcester groups, presented Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem at Mechanics Hall on November 12, 2017. This performance was supported in part by an Investment Portfolio Project Grant from Massachusetts Cultural Council.
