Who We Are

The Quincy Choral Society is based in historic Quincy, Massachusetts. Founded in 1981, QCS has performed in the Boston area as well as at Carnegie Hall in NYC and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. QCS has traveled and performed internationally in Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Russia, Scotland, Switzerland, and Wales, with performances in Chartres Cathedral, All Hallows by the Tower (London), at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, in St. Mark’s Cathedral (Venice) and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin.

Previous to Maestro Rohde, for 28 years, QCS grew under the direction of John Nichols and accompanist Gingy Grimes, growing to over 90 members. Singers are from all walks of life: business people, doctors, lawyers, teachers, homemakers, students, and retirees. Members live between Boston and Cape Cod and share the common love of singing together.

Angel Band – A Christmas Cantata

Mozart Requiem

Mozart’s Requiem is a staple in the choral repertoire. The dramatic power of Mozart’s final composition highlights the austere and ultimately redemptive language of the text of the requiem mass.
