WHO ARE WE?
MetroWest Choral Artists (MWCA) is an all-professional choral ensemble, based in Natick, specializing in classical music.
MWCA presents the very best in music, from the Renaissance to the present day. The ensemble proudly fills an important cultural need in the Natick area. Many members of MWCA, as well as its founding director, Leonardo Ciampa, are residents of Natick and neighboring communities.
MWCA is made up of sixteen highly skilled, carefully chosen vocalists (5 sopranos, 5 altos, 3 tenors, and 3 basses), each of whom sing choral works with the whole ensemble, as well as smaller ensembles and solos. Director Leonardo Ciampa strives for a unified choral sound based on pure vowels, flawless intonation, and the belief that every singer who sings healthily with his or her own voice helps, not hinders, blend. Our goal is to present our repertoire with the utmost sensitivity to color, expression, and historical performance practice for all music, not just early music.
MWCA is a collaborative organization in which each of the sixteen members helps with publicity and administrative duties. Each singer is paid an equal share of the proceeds of ticket sales for each concert.
