On behalf of the Spectrum Singers, I’d like to welcome you to our Web site and invite you to learn more about one of Boston’s most adventurous choral groups. The Spectrum Singers perform choral music from the pre-Renaissance through the 20th century, emphasizing seldom-heard works by master composers. We encourage you to attend one of our upcoming concerts or to join our mailing list. And if you’re looking for a group to sing with, please consider auditioning for us.
