About Us

Who We Are

Originally founded in Danvers, MA, Exsultet! performed from 1999-2003 to the delight of North Shore audiences.  Now, in our sixth season, Exsultet! has been enchanting audiences in Holliston, Massachusetts since 2013.

We are an auditioned women’s chamber ensemble combining great music, drama, and poetry to inspire audiences with adventurous and innovative novels-in-a-concert.

Our performances draw you into the drama through a fusing of action, poetry, and song.

Exsultet’s mission is:

  • to give women an opportunity to join together to make music;
  • to showcase the works of up and coming composers and arrangers;
  • to feature the talents of local musicians and actors;
  • to offer compelling performances of choral music from disparate cultures and eras;
  • to combine performance and advocacy by focusing on important community issues and partnering with other local organizations; and
  • to instill a love of the choral arts in young people through our youth chorus, Jubilate!

Rehearsals

We rehearse on Monday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00pm from early September until mid-May at First Congregational Church, Holliston, MA.

Exsultet’s season includes numerous concerts with performances at other locations and periodic collaborations with other musical groups.
