NY Choral Director David HayesThe 175-voice NY Choral (New York Choral Society), led by music director David Hayes, has been performing in Carnegie Hall and other exciting venues for over 50 years. Their members are a diverse community of people who have come together to share their passion for music.

NY Choral members sing on a volunteer basis, but many have studied music or vocal performance. They are all committed to the chorus: they pay their membership dues, prepare their music, attend rehearsals, sell tickets to concerts and contribute in other ways when they can (volunteering time, soliciting charitable contributions, making personal contributions). It’s not inexpensive to rent Carnegie Hall, let alone pay the professional orchestra and soloists, purchase scores, rent rehearsal space and so on.

Benefits of NY Choral Membership

Members contribute to the chorus in all these ways because it gives so much in return. And once you have auditioned and been accepted as a member, an exciting and satisfying musical experience awaits you, too! Here are just some of the benefits of being a NY Choral member:

  • Singing, and improving, as a singer and musician under the direction of David Hayes, their very talented and accomplished music director.
  • Performing exciting classical masterpieces, rarely performed choral gems and exceptional new music with other highly talented and dedicated singers, and often with a professional orchestra and soloists.
  • Singing at Carnegie Hall and other wonderful venues.
  • Enjoying a substantial member discount on NY Choral concert tickets.
  • Being part of a wonderful community of friendly people who love to sing and socialize. Many develop friendships in the chorus that have lasted for many years, and everyone enjoys meeting new singers who join at the start of each season.
  • NY Choral GroupSocializing with fellow members; many go out together after rehearsals and there is an annual benefit Gala and an end of season member party.
  • Traveling and singing around the world on NY Choral Summer Tours.
