ABOUT TOGETHER IN SONG

Together in Song is a celebration of the art - and community - of choruses, featuring performances drawn from choirs around the world and from right here in New England.

Join host Anthony Trecek-King on Classical New England each Sunday at 6pm, and listen on-demand below.





There’s a reason choral music has been called "The First Art." The simple act of joining voices together - be it in devotion, in sorrow, or in celebration - is one of the oldest impulses of the human community. It has given rise to some of the greatest works of Western art over the centuries, and programs like Glee on television and the phenomenal popularity of college a cappella groups reflect the irresistible vitality of choral music.

Together in Song is a celebration of both choral music and of the myriad ensembles and personalities who present it, woven together by host Anthony Trecek-King, artistic director of the Boston Children’s Chorus.

Tune in each Sunday at 6pm and listen on-demand to choral art through legendary and recent recordings, as well as performances from our own New England back yard.
