Lee Colby Wilson served as Conductor and Artistic Director of the CCCC from 2007-2024 bringing a remarkable wealth of knowledge and experience to the group.  She has a distinguished career as both a concert pianist and a music educator. Lee is the former Director of Arts and Culture at the Winnacunnet High School in New Hampshire and prior to that had been Chair of the music department at the Cambridge School in Weston, MA. Her spirit and joy for music are infectious and have inspired the singers in the chorus. The CCCC is eternally grateful for Lee's dedication and commitment to the group. The chorus would not be where we are today without her.

Marilyn Cook was the accompanist for the CCCC from 2013-2024. Marilyn graduated from Northwestern University School of Music in 1972 as a flute student of Walfrid Kujala of the Chicago Symphony. Since that time, she has worked professionally with Lee Wilson in various performances in the New England area. During her time with the CCCC, Marilyn joined us in performance as a professional flutist. We are grateful that she brought us her lengthy experience as a choral accompanist and director. The chorus was lucky to have had her for these many years.

David Morochnick founded the CCCC in the spring of 1997 and conducted the Chorus for its first decade. 

Florence "Flossie" Dunn was accompanist for the CCCC for ten years. The chorus benefited greatly from her experience is truly grateful for all she contributed to the advancement of our musicianship.

Our DVD, Singing in the Roses, was selected to be in the juried exhibition, Art from the Minot Rose Garden, at the Brookline Art Center in February-March, 2009.

Our group looks to be active participants in enriching the community around us. We give several performances at local senior senior housing, nursing homes, and community events such as First Light.  

The Chorus has collaborated with a number of local organizations including the Brookline Historical Society, Brookline School System's All-Town Chorus, Friends of the Minot Rose Garden, Brookline Public Library, and the Brookline Community Mental Health Center.

We are actively raising money to benefit those in the area, including the Devo Scholars - a group that provided private music lessons to several hundred children unable to afford them.

CCCC community involvement goes beyond singing: Our team won the 2009 Brookline Education Foundation Spelling Bee by correctly spelling phrontistery.

About the CCCC
Supported by
​The Coolidge Community Chorus (CCCC) is a non-auditioned chorus that embraces singers of all abilities: whether you have previously sung with other choirs and can read music, or you have enjoyed singing “Happy Birthday” to family and friends, we look forward to meeting you. The chorus is divided into four parts (SATB), but if you do not know your voice type we will help you work it out.

We sing music that covers a broad range of styles and languages, and are open to suggestions of new repertoire to try. Members are provided with copies of the music and binders, and the only items you may want to bring to rehearsal are a water bottle and a pencil. Members pay annual dues, but partial and whole scholarships are available for those who are unable to meet the cost.

We have a concert each spring at a local venue and may arrange other less formal performances during the year.

Our rehearsal space is fully accessible. We do not discriminate on grounds of gender, sexual orientation, race or religious beliefs. We prefer that all members be vaccinated against COVID-19 (but we understand medical and other considerations). Masks are welcome but optional; masks will be required if the average viral RNA count at the Deer Island Treatment Plant rises to above 1,000 copies per ml.
