The Boston Cecilia is a choral society in Boston, Massachusetts. Founded in 1876, the ensemble has enjoyed historic relationships with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and famous conductors and composers, such as Arthur Fiedler, Igor Stravinsky, and Antonín Dvořák. Today, the ensemble is noted for its historical-style performances, and specializes in the oratorios of George Frederic Handel as well as premieres by prominent Boston composers.
After 44 years, Donald Teeters retired as music director after the 2011-2012 season. The 2012-2013 season had performances conducted by guest conductors Dan Perkins, Amy Lieberman, and Nicholas White. In April 2013, Nicholas White was announced as the new artistic director.
