Tabor Academy’s choristers swell the ranks of six different choral ensembles from the entry-level training chorus to the select Madrigal Singers. Tabor's choral musicians audition for and perform at the Southeastern District, Massachusetts All-State and All-Eastern Music Festivals. They study voice and perform in solo recitals, choral concerts, school meetings and chapel. They sing any time the community gathers for reflection or celebration, and take their special gifts to schools, churches and nursing homes outside Tabor. Tabor Academy’s Choral Music Program is diverse, challenging and growing.
Choral and Vocal Music Performance Venues
Whether for Senior Convocation, Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, Veterans Day, or Memorial Day, the Chapel Program is served by Tabor Academy’s Choral groups and soloists. All-School Meeting on Tuesdays offers another weekly opportunity for vocal ensembles and solo performers to present themselves to the community. Finally, the more casual open mic nights are popular with our vocalists.
Lessons and Carols, a traditional Christmas worship service, features all our choral ensembles throughout the service and is our largest choral concert each year. Additionally, the Mixed Chorus presents with the Wind Ensemble and the String Ensemble at the evening Spring Concert for the entire school community, a highlight of the season.
The Chamber Choirs and the a cappella groups perform with other small instrumental ensembles in a Spring Chamber Recital which offers a delightfully eclectic blend of classical and popular repertoire the second week of May.
The Madrigal Singers present the fruits of intensive labor at their Spring Concert in the Chapel in May.
