About Us

The Chorus of East Providence was incorporated as a Rhode Island non-profit organization in September 2007 and is now designated as a federal 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

Our Mission: to educate our members and the public about music and choral singing while fostering an appreciation of music by all, enhancing the cultural life of the community.

Beth Armstrong, Music Director

Beth Armstrong is the director of the Greater Tiverton Community Chorus, in addition to the Chorus of East Providence. Recently retired from teaching at Roger Williams University, she has used her newfound free time writing her first novel. Previously, she chaired the choral department at the Music School of the Rhode Island Philharmonic, and coordinated both the Junior Providence Singers and the JPS Treble Chorus there. Before moving to Rhode Island, Beth directed the Suncook Valley Chorale in Concord, New Hampshire, and taught public school music for 12 years. A graduate of Tufts University, she pursued a master’s degree in Music Education at the University of New Hampshire. Along with her husband, Stewart, she sang in the Providence Singers for five years and currently they both sing in the choir at First Unitarian Church of Providence.
