In January 2020, we welcomed Justin Moore as our new director. An avid singer and dedicated contributor to choral music, Justin has performed with and conducted a wide variety of ensembles. As a conductor, Justin has led educational ensembles in Arlington, MA at the elementary, middle school, and high school level where he served as the 6th grade chorus director and interim High School Director of Vocal Studies. For four years he led the women's acappella ensemble, Second Wind, premiering numerous inventive vocal arrangements for SSAA ensembles. Justin also served as the choral teaching artist in residence at two Boston Public high schools through the Metropolitan Opera Guild's Urban Voices program. As a singer, Justin has lent his voice to ensembles throughout Greater Boston, including the Choir of St. Paul's in Harvard Square, the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, and Metrowest Choral Artists. He has also participated in numerous opera productions and solo recitals, singing at Faneuil Hall, the Museum of Fine Arts, and Symphony Hall. A recipient of a Master of Music degree from the Longy School of Music, Justin continues to build upon his knowledge of vocal pedagogy and its application to choral singing. Justin is an active composer and arranger, regularly premiering new music with various vocal groups. Justin currently oversees a thriving private voice studio and serves as cantor and section leader at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Newton Centre. He resides in Framingham with his wife, soprano Sarah Orlovsky, and their two sons, James and John.
In the spring of 1979, a group of friends under the direction of Floice Lund began singing together in the kitchen of the wildlife sanctuary director’s home on the grounds of Broadmoor Audubon Sanctuary in Natick, Massachusetts. Since that time, the Broadmoor Chamber Singers have performed extensively in New England for music-loving audiences at Faneuil Hall, the Hammond Castle, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Higgins Armory and numerous churches.
The group is known for its diverse repertoire.
