Combine twenty-five families singing in harmony, with a backdrop of some of the area’s most talented musicians, and some of the best-loved folk music around, and you have the one-of-a-kind Family Folk Chorale, the intergenerational chorus. The spirited energy of children, the honesty of teenagers coming of age, and the experience of adulthood and elders all come shining through as chorale members aged 3-75 raise their voices in harmony and invite audiences to sing along.
"The Family Folk Chorale is what folk music is all about – or what it should be all about – people coming together as a community, crossing generations, and singing because it’s what they love to do."
- Matt Smith, Manager, legendary Club Passim, Harvard Square
"I've always said that people singing together creates an atmosphere of happiness - and the Family Folk Chorale proves it! It's a joy to be in the same room with them."
- Ellen Kushner, host of PRI's Sound and Spirit
The intergenerational Family Folk Chorale welcomes members of every age, race, family status, religious belief, and sexual orientation.
