About the Westford Chorus
Bringing choral music to Westford and beyond
Since its founding in 1983, the Westford Chorus has transcended the boundaries of community chorus by performing diverse and challenging works ranging from Mozart's Requiem to P.D.Q. Bach's The Seasonings, from Renaissance polyphony to Spanish Christmas carols, from Carl Orff's Carmina Burana to 1940s swing, to costumed productions of favorites such as Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance, Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, and Bizet's Carmen. The Chorus has sung with orchestral backup, 18-piece swing bands, and eclectic world music groups such as Urban Myth.
We are supported by our Local Cultural Councils
Westford Chorus is supported in part by grants from the Westford Cultural Council and Chelmsford Cultural Council, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
