World House – Seven Continents Equals One World!
A celebration of our spectacular world through song and photographs
Labyrinth Choir presents theme-based concerts open to the public and supports the musicians by compensating them a professional wage for rehearsals and concerts. This organization, founded in 2011, consists of a professional choral conductor, Dr. Anita Kupriss, twenty professional singers and a professional accompanist, Maria Rivera White who has a master’s in collaborative performance from The Julliard School of Music. Dr. Anita Kupriss received her DMA in choral conducting at Boston University in 2009.
Labyrinth Choir believes that concerts can be a participatory, rather than a purely passive experience and encourages the audience to sing a song and/or recite poetry. They released their first CD The Heart of Music in April 2015 and will release a second CD Celestial Whispers in 2019. Their motto is "seeking the heart of music through the art of singing.”

Labyrinth Choir, a vocal ensemble of 22 professional musicians, celebrates the diversity of the world and all its peoples through song and photographs. The music features the seven continents of the world, while breathtaking images captured by world traveler and photographer Martin Jernberg highlight their beauty – and become the evening’s backdrop.
This performance was Inspired by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words: “We have inherited a large house, a great ‘world house’ in which we have to live together—black and white, Easterner and Westerner, Gentile and Jew, Catholic and Protestant, Moslem and Hindu.”
Audience participation is encouraged. There will be a sing-along to a South African traditional song, as well as the Michael Jackson/Lionel Richie hit “We Are the World.”
Celebrate with us! Leave inspired.
This concert is supported in part by the 2018 Alfred Nash Patterson Grant from Choral Arts New England and from the Southborough Cultural Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
