Longwood Chorus


The mission of the Longwood Chorus, a 70-voice ensemble of Boston's healthcare and science community, is to bring together a community of healthcare and research professionals to decrease medical burnout, promote emotional wellness, and perform high-quality choral music.


Since its founding in 2017, the Longwood Chorus has brought together singers of various healthcare backgrounds – medical, graduate, and public health students, researchers, clinical research coordinators, therapists, nurses, residents, and attending physicians – from local schools and hospitals, including Harvard Medical School, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. We stage biannual concerts along with numerous outreach performances at hospitals and community events.

In lieu of our spring concert, The Longwood Chorus presents: Irish Blessing

When we began rehearsing for our Spring 2020 concert, we never imagined how meaningful these words would be given the current situation. Amidst the darkness, we hope you find some joy and comfort in our virtual performance of Irish Blessing. We send our blessings and hope you take care – until we meet again!

In dedication to all those working during the COVID-19 crisis, The Longwood Chorus presents: Bridge Over Troubled Water

We are so excited to debut our virtual performance of Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water," in an effort to raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts. All donations made to the Longwood Chorus in the month of May will be redirected to the Boston Resiliency Fund, which provides food for children and seniors, technology for remote learning for students, and support to first responders and healthcare workers in the City of Boston.

UPDATE: During our month of fundraising, we raised over $600! You can still donate to the Boston Resiliency Fund here, or consider making a donation to the chorus on our donate page here
