The New School Chorus

  • The New School Chorus is an exciting ensemble, open to members from the entire New School and greater New York City community. The chorus fosters joyful communal singing and offers participants a chance to explore a range of music and singing styles from around the world—everything from Western choral masterpieces to eastern European folk singing, classic American jazz and popular song to traditional music. In rehearsals, members perform both written works and music learned by ear using a fun and educational approach to exploring the sonic possibilities of the human voice.

    The chorus engages with the school and city community as much as possible in performances and other forms of outreach throughout the year.

    Chorus rehearsals take place Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Wollman Hall, 65 West 11th Street.
