2017 Alumni Choral Festival

We’re getting ready for another mid-March Choral Festival Weekend—we’ve paid for our space at Milton Academy, alerted the caterer, applied for liability insurance, reserved a bloc of rooms at the Comfort Inn, and more. Jeff Douma, Tim de Werff, and others are honing their muses.

Now it’s up to our singers. Fill out the application form and send it with your check made out to YaleBoston, or register and pay on-line below. It won’t be the same without you!

Our singing world is made up of Yale singers, their families, and singing friends, so if you know of others who would enjoy this exemplary weekend, please pass along registration information to them. Please respond quickly.

Cost $295 per person, which includes meals (below), music, royalties, rehearsal and concert space rental, piano tuning, printing, mailing, and other overhead expenses. Payments may be made on this page, or by mailing a check to YaleBoston, P.O. Box 812934, Wellesley, MA 02482.

Music Our core work will be selections from traditional and contemporary spirituals plus other works from the Alumni Chorus repertoire, all looking ahead to YAC’s concerts in Toronto August 9-13, 2017. Copies will be mailed six weeks before the festival weekend.

Meals Saturday and Sunday lunches will be provided at Milton Academy as part of the program cost, as will continental breakfasts and appropriate beverages during rehearsal times. Singers are free Saturday evening or may walk to the Travers' home for a modest meal shortly after rehearsal ends.

Housing Because so many of the participants live within driving distance of Milton or will wish to stay with Boston-area family or friends, we do not include housing in the program. Marriott and Comfort Inns are within comfortable distance of Milton. A bloc of rooms at a modest price ($109 plus tax per night) is reserved until Feb. 24 at the nearby Comfort Inn Randolph (781 961-1000); ask for the Yale Choral Festival reservation.
