Concord Women's Chorus, based in Concord, Massachusetts, is an auditioned chorus comprised of approximately 45 singers from Concord and the greater Boston area. Directed by Jane Ring Frank, the chorus performs a wide variety of choral music, ranging from early music to contemporary repertoire.

The chorus began in 1960 as a small group of women who enjoyed singing madrigals gathered in each other's homes to sing together. They became the Concord Madrigals, hired a music director, and began giving concerts. Over the years the group increased in size, level of quality, and the variety of music performed. In 2005 the Concord Madrigals became the Concord Women's Chorus, in order to more accurately reflect the wide range of music that is performed. The chorus typically presents two concerts each year; a holiday concert in December, and a spring concert in early May. In addition, we also occasionally have other special performances, such as benefit concerts for the Wayside Hospice and the Bethke Cancer Care Center at Emerson Hospital. We have also performed with the Concord Orchestra, and gone on concert tours both in the U.S. and in Great Britain.

One of our primary missions is to provide encouragement and support to a a younger generation of girls and women who enjoy choral singing.

Concord Women's Chorus is a member of the Greater Boston Choral Consortium and Chorus America.
