The New York Choral Society performs a wide range of choral music in many wonderful venues and with exciting collaborators.
We are always looking to add talented voices to our chorus. 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!
Our regular 2021-22 season auditions have been completed. Auditions for men’s voices may be offered during the season; women’s voices will next be auditioned next season. To be considered for an audition in the current season, men are welcome to complete the form below expressing their interest in auditioning. We’ll be glad to send you more information.
Important Note: All NYCHORAL members must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 in order to sing this season. All those wishing to audition must be fully vaccinated at least 15 days before their audition date, and show their vaccination record before the audition.
Performing in our chorus
Our typical season is September through early May. We rehearse weekly on Tuesday evenings, starting at 7pm, on the Upper West Side. Our schedule includes some Saturday rehearsals and dress rehearsals on other weekdays, as needed for each concert.
Audition with us!
If you are an experienced choral singer with good musical skills (sing on pitch, with accurate rhythm, good sight-reading) and want to be inspired and challenged, audition with us! Our auditions usually include singing a prepared piece (any genre, less than 3 minutes), vocal scales, a rhythm-reading exercise, and sight-reading (we provide the piano accompanist).
To let us know you would like to audition with us, please complete the form below. If you have any questions or would like more information, you are welcome to contact Chorus Manager Nancy Tollefson at firstname.lastname@example.org
