The MetroWest Choral Artists

Leonardo Ciampa, Artistic Director & Founder

MetroWest Choral Artists (MWCA) is an all-professional choral ensemble, based in the Natick/Wellesley area. MWCA presents the very best in music, from the Renaissance to the present day.

“What we do is neither ‘early music singing’ nor ‘opera singing’ – only good singing.
MWCA is good singers making a good sound that is applied to all repertoire.”
– Director Leonardo Ciampa

MWCA is comprised of 14 highly skilled, carefully chosen vocalists, each of whom sing choral works with the whole ensemble, as well as solos and smaller ensembles. Director Leonardo Ciampa has vast experience as a vocal coach and accompanist, both here and in Italy. He is rare among choral directors in his profound understanding of what the human voice can and can’t do. He has a reputation for achieving 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.
