Historical roots run deep in Milton’s Choral Music Program. The program includes over 200 participants in one or more of eleven distinct ensembles, each of which performs from a broad repertoire. Founded in 1925, the Glee Club is the longest running activity at the school; it boasts over 100 members and performs a minimum of two concerts per year. The award-winning Chamber Singers, a select chorus of about 35, has toured Romania, Kenya, Italy, Ireland, England, China and Hawaii and has performed at Carnegie Hall. Most recently, the Chamber Singers performed at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Angels in Rome, a basilica designed by the great Michaelangelo.

Those interested in a cappella music may audition for one of four groups on campus including the Miltones (male), Octet (female), Epic (female) and Three for Each of Us (co-ed). Both the Miltones and Octet were chosen as the only high school or college representatives at the annual Boston A Cappella Association conference.
Also on campus are the Chapel Choir and Gospel Choir. Both groups perform regularly at Sunday evening chapel services.
For students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades, the Middle School chorus presents two concerts annually and has toured France six times since its inception nine years ago.
