About Polymnia Choral Society

The Polymnia Choral Society is composed of people who love to sing and to share their music with others.

Founded in Wakefield in 1953 and based in Melrose since 1956, the group serves the cultural and educational interests of a number of communities north of Boston by presenting concerts ranging from sacred hymns and classical music to popular show tunes.

The chorus includes more than 60 voices, with most of the singers coming from Melrose, Malden, Wakefield, Stoneham and Saugus; some members come from as far away as Concord, Westborough, Marblehead and Topsfield.

Polymnia Choral Society is a not-for-profit organization which is supported in part by a grant from the Melrose Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Polymnia welcomes anyone who enjoys singing to come to a rehearsal and join the chorus!

Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings, 7:00-9:30 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 70 West Emerson St, Melrose, across from the Melrose Public Library.


  • To promote the knowledge and enjoyment of a broad range of good choral music and to provide a wider access to that music;
  • To afford an opportunity for the people of Melrose and surrounding communities to sing sacred and secular choral music of high quality;
  • To present concerts and occasional other performances for the enjoyment of the public;
  • To develop among the singers and the broader public of our communities an appreciation of fine music and high standards of choral work.
