NEC Chorus (Choir)

Founded: 1947 - Boston, Massachusetts, USA

The New England Conservatory Chorus (= NEC Chorus) was established by Lorna Cooke deVaron in 1947 to provide professional training for singers, music educators and conductors, and has since become one of the country's most celebrated choral ensembles. Among its 17 recordings with the Boston Symphony Orchestra are Berlioz' Romeo et Juliette, which won the chorus' 7th Grand Prix du Disque award, and Gustav Holst's The Planets. Its performance of Paul Chihara's a cappella Missa Brevis appears on CRI. The NEC Chorus has made extensive tours of the USA, the Soviet Union, Israel, and Europe, and has performed under such distinguished conductors as Seiji Ozawa, Sir Colin Davis, Charles Munch, Erich Leinsdorf, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Robert Shaw, Nadia Boulanger, and Claudio Abbado.
