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.

Presenting the Longwood Chorus Winter 2020 Virtual Performance:

As our efforts have remained online, our winter 2020 concert comes to you in the form of a virtual performance of "Shall We Gather at the River." We had so much fun putting this together and hope you enjoy! If you are able, please consider making a donation on our donation page - 50% of donations made during the month of March will be redirected to Boston Health Care for the Homeless, which provides housing, COVID test, and vaccines to vulnerable populations.
