The New York Choral Society performs a wide range of choral music in many wonderful venues and with exciting collaborators.
Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds and musical experiences. If you love to sing and are passionate about sharing the essential joy and power of live choral music, join us!
Auditions for the 2022-23 season have been completed. We hope that you will be able to audition with us next season — auditions are typically held in August (scheduling begins early that month), and our season starts in September. If you have any questions, you’re welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your interest in singing with us!
Performing in our chorus
NYCHORAL, led by music director David Hayes, is a great place to perform wonderful choral music, and make lots of friends. Our typical season is September to May/mid-June. We rehearse weekly on Tuesday evenings, 7-9:15pm, on the Upper West Side. Our schedule includes some Saturday rehearsals and dress rehearsals on other weekdays, as needed for each concert.
Preparing for your audition
Your audition with Music Director David Hayes will include singing a short prepared piece (less than 3 minutes). It may be any style of music; we ask singers to bring an extra copy of the score for our accompanist. The audition will also also include vocal scales, a rhythm-reading exercise and a short sight-reading selection.
