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!
We typically hold mid-season auditions in January, during our winter break. Those offered a spot in the chorus then would join us for the Spring portion of our season (January 30th through June 14, 2024). You are welcome to complete the audition request form below or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or with any questions. Thank you 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, 7-9:30pm, 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 include vocal scales, a rhythm-reading exercise and a short sight-reading selection.
