WholeTone Extended Family


Protest Choir Project is looking for members for the coming season! Everyone of all types and stripes is welcome to join our Monday Inclusive Choir Class at Make Shift Boston from 7:30-9pm. All those who are Queer, Trans, and/or PoC, come on over to the Arts at the Armory and magnify your voices from 4:30-6pm on Sundays too! We’ll continue learning how to be loud and proud without hurting ourselves in the process. Both choir classes will include a 30 min Experiential Anatomy Workshop, a 30 min Vocal Workout, and 30 minutes of singing Social Justice Songs.

Group voice lessons + social justice songs + slightly rowdy choir = Protest Choir Project. Sliding Scale $5-$30/class. Email us on the WholeTone contact page for more info – be sure to include “Protest Choir” in the subject line!

WholeTone Opera seeks to highlight female, femme, and non-binary composers and artists. We hope to join forces with other local opera companies in the process of revitalizing Boston’s opera community, offering alternative productions with fresh, gripping performances. We rehearse and perform in Somerville at WholeTone Studios near Davis Square. WTO was founded by WholeTone Music Academy’s Nora Maynard in 2015. Mariia and Von, WTMA teachers, also work at WTO. Check out WholeTone Opera here!

Genesis Chamber Singers is a choral chamber choir performing in South Shore communities. Von, former WTMA teacher, is in the ensemble and one of their composers! “Genesis Chamber Singers is innovating the concept of musical performance by integrating the audience into the experience. We want to remove the formal barriers people often feel between themselves and classical musicians. Our singers are professional musicians who seek to share their passion and knowledge with the Genesis audience. Our performances provide opportunities for audience members to discuss the music with the singers — before, after, and even during the performance…. Learn a little. Join the conversation. Make the connection. Be a part of Genesis.”

Renaissance Men is New England’s professional male vocal chamber ensemble! Founded in 2014, RenMen has taken Boston’s choral scene by storm, performing everything from Bach to The Mama’s & The Papa’s. WTMA teacher, Gary, has been part of RenMen since March 2017.
