Common Ground Community Chorus


Common Ground Community Chorus is a Boise community chorus devoted to the performance of high quality standard, popular and contemporary choral music. It seeks to display the positive face of the open-minded and progressive citizens of the Treasure Valley, welcoming and recognizing diverse people.

Common Ground Community Chorus begins our 16th season!

Common Ground Community Chorus had our first rehearsal on September 12th. We were so excited to have many new voices attend. The excitement was overwhelming.

This season we are looking forward to two major concerts along with several other events including:

  • Concert for Refugees
  • A fall member retreat
  • VA Verteran's Concert
  • Caldwell Light Parade
  • MLK Day of Remembrance
  • Singing the National Anthem at Steelhead games
  • If you are interested in joining us, it's not too late! Send an email to our membership director at Membership Director.

    Common Ground Community Chorus 2015-2016 Season is about to begin

    After a wonderful summer break Common Ground Community Chorus 2015-2106 is about to begin. Our first rehearsal will be on September 14th at the First Congregational Church of Christ on Woodlawn Ave. We are looking forward to a new season with our new Artistic Director, Becky Long.

    If you are interested in joining please send an email to our Membership Director.

    Common Ground welcomes singers without regard to religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. Our shared belief in the value of all people and our shared commitment to social justice create a bond among our members.

    The chorus is open to anyone who loves to sing and can match pitch ("carry a tune"). Though musical experience and reading ability are certainly helpful, these are not necessities for membership. A formal audition is not required, but a short individual session with the director will be held upon joining to determine vocal quality and range, for placement purposes.

    Join us! Send us an email your name, contact information, and briefly describe your previous singing and musical experience and/or training, if any.

    If you would like to "check us out" before making a commitment, we welcome interested visitors at our rehearsals for a "trial run." We rehearse on Monday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30 pm, at the First Congregational Church of Christ: 2201 Woodlawn Ave, Boise.

    "…Something special happens when people come together to lift their voices in harmony. Music can reach into those places where words alone cannot … souls are touched; barriers are transcended..."-Rebecca Long

    2015 Membership Meeting

    Common Grounds annual General Membership meeting was held on August 22, 2015. The chorus got together to discuss our past season and begin planning for the 2015 - 2016 Season. Thank you to Karen and Bruce Kelly for opening up their beautiful home for the afternoon. Of course a meeting would not be the same without some great food and conversation. It was a wonderful afternoon!
