Registration for the
Leverett and Caravan Choruses 2023 Fall  sessions
will begin late summer. Let me know if you would like a reminder email.

Read about the choruses, below, and let me know which you would like to join. Complete the Contact form and I’ll get back with confirmation and what to do next.


Our chorus is a non-auditioned ensemble that welcomes all singers, regardless of experience or ability to read music. Recordings of voice parts are provided in addition to sheet music. We sing SATB choral music in the folk, classical, blues and gospel traditions, as well as songs from a variety of world cultures. Our focus is on enjoying singing together in harmony and in community.

Rehearsals take place on the following Tuesday evenings:
October 3, 10, 17, 24, 31
November 7, 14, 21, 28
December 5, 12, 19
January 2 and 9.
We will present a concert at the end of the season (on either the second or third weekend of January, date to be determined).

Please note – there is a limit of 60 participants for this Leverett Chorus Fall session.
I will notify you that you have a spot, so please wait to hear back from me before mailing your registration and payment.

The fee for the fall session is $140 per person. There are several work-exchange options and partial scholarships available. Please contact me if you want to discuss these.


The mission of the Caravan Chorus is to reach out to elders through song.

We will rehearse at Mt. Toby Meeting House in Leverett from 2:00 to 3:30 pm on Tuesdays –
October 3, 10, 17, 24, 31
November 7
January 2 and 9.

Our site visits to elder care centers will take place on Tuesdays –
November 14, 21, 28 and December 5, 12 and 19.


We will learn a repertoire of songs for the chorus to sing at Assisted Living centers and Senior Community Centers. A sample of some of our choral music includes a rousing sea chantey, Haul Away, the classic ballad, Love Me Tender, and a beautiful arrangement of the Wailin’ Jennie’s anthem, One Voice.  In addition, I will be teaching chorus members basics of harmony, so that you all can harmonize on beloved folk songs like Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, Blue Moon, and Sam Cooke’s You Send Me. We will be using choral sheet music for some songs, and then harmonizing by ear on other songs.

On Tuesdays, November 14, 21, 28, December 5, 12 and 19 we will caravan out to elder care centers for 2:00 pm performances. We begin each site visit with a choral performance of about 5 to 6 songs. During the second half of the performance, chorus members join with the elders for a singalong. This part of the site visit is always the most exciting part for both us and our audience, as we join together in a joyous community sing. Magic happens!


At the end of the season the Caravan Chorus will join with the Leverett Community Chorus to present a Concert for the greater community during the second or third weekend of January. (Date to be determined)

There is a limit of 45 participants for the Caravan Chorus.

The fee for the fall session is $140 per person. There are several work-exchange options and partial scholarships available. Please use the form above if you want to discuss this with me.

What’s the difference between the Leverett Community Chorus and the Caravan Chorus?

  • The Caravan Chorus will meet during the day, the Leverett Chorus will continue to meet at night.
  • Caravan Chorus will have tons of fun music to sing too, but it will involve less memorization of SATB choral music and will also involve learning to harmonize by ear on some songs. The focus of this chorus is on community outreach through song.
  • The Leverett Community Chorus is more challenging and will involve learning and memorizing SATB choral music of different musical genres including songs from a variety of world cultures.

So, if you would like to join either, or both, choruses please use the form at the top of this page to let me know.
