The Lexington Pops Chorus Welcomes You to Its 37th Season!
The Lexington Pops Chorus was formed in 1982. Directed by Robert A. Lague, our chorus distinguishes itself from many other choruses in two ways: our programs are based on a Pops format of both classical and popular music, and no auditions are required for membership.
The Pops is open to anyone eighteen years of age or older. New members should be able to read music and to stand on risers for performances. The chorus is based in Lexington, but fewer than half our members are from Lexington, and more than half have been in the chorus for longer than ten years.
We sing a wide variety of music, including classical, jazz, blues, Broadway, and folk, as well as "theme" concerts, such as our Night at the Opera, American Civil War and American Composers concerts. We enjoy singing folk songs from various countries and in several languages, including Latin, German, Ladino, Spanish, French, and Hebrew. Some of the works from the classical repertoire which we have performed include pieces by Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Mozart, and Schubert. Because of this great variety, we enjoy great challenges and are always learning and having fun!
Auditions: There is no audition, but new chorus members must be able to read music.
Open Rehearsals: Before joining, potential chorus members are invited to sing with us at the first two rehearsals of a semester. Two free open rehearsals for the spring semester take place on Tuesdays, January 22 and 29, 2019, 7:30 pm in Clark Hall of Hancock Church, 1912 Mass. Ave. Lexington. Auditions are not required; however singers must be able to read music and stand for concerts. If you love to sing, please join us. We look forward to welcoming you! The Lexington Pops Chorus is a member of The Greater Boston Choral Consortium and currently enjoys the enthusiasm of more than 65 singers from over 23 towns.
