The Blackstone Valley Community Chorus (BVCC) was formed in 2004 with sixty singers from five towns throughout the valley. The BVCC attracts singers of varied abilities and musical backgrounds, united through their love of music. Audiences at annual spring and fall concerts are treated to a wide variety of a cappella and accompanied music. BVCC singers are continually challenged and encouraged to grow, both as a musical group and as individual performers.

The Blackstone Valley Chamber Singers are a smaller group of 16 voices selected from the general chorus membership. Their repertoire includes madrigals, chorals, ancient songs, and other interesting and challenging pieces suited to small groups. The Chamber Singers offer their repertoire of beautiful pieces, ready to sing at short notice and in a variety of venues.
