Who are we?
Exsultet is an auditioned women’s chorus performing a repertoire of choral literature across musical periods and cultures in residence at First Congregational Church in Holliston, Massachusetts. For Exsultet, music and the spoken word are intimately related. But this unity does not stop at choral music – our concerts also incorporate readings, drama, and poetry. The beauty inherent in the music is reflected in the drama the audience experiences through our actors. Our innovative novel-in-a-concert format draws you into the drama through fusion of action, poetry, and song. The members of Exsultet invite you to be transported to another time and another place at one of our performances. We few, we happy few, love making music and challenging ourselves to present concerts which enlighten and entertain. Join us for an exciting season of music, drama, and poetry.
The mission of Exsultet!, an auditioned women’s chorus in Boston’s Metrowest area, is to:
- Present diverse, challenging, and eclectic choral concerts to the Metrowest community;
- Educate, inspire, and entertain our audiences with the highest quality performances of choral music;
- Provide performance, music education, and mentorship opportunities for young musicians through our outreach programs, especially the Jubilate! Youth chorus.
You are bringing much needed, long awaited quality to the music scene in this area. Each concert is better than the last and the degree of refinement is one we haven’t heard.
