THE NEW YORK CHORAL SOCIETY The New York Choral Society (NYCHORAL), founded in 1958, has become known by audiences and critics for the quality of its performances and the diversity of its repertoire, which encompasses well-known choral masterworks as well as many compositions rarely heard in concert halls. The 175-voice symphonic chorus has been widely recognized for its outstanding performances at prestigious music venues around the world. For more than half a century NYCHORAL has enriched the cultural life of the New York community by performing a rich variety of choral music from classic to contemporary pieces, including newly commissioned works, to some 10,000 people per year; and by fostering interest and participation in choral music through education and community outreach, especially to children. Since 1984 the singers of NYCHORAL have also served as “ambassadors of music” abroad, with concert tours to Italy, Austria, China, France, Israel, Mexico, Croatia, Greece, and the Czech Republic. In 2014, NYCHORAL toured Central Europe and performed in a high mass in St. Stephens Cathedral, Vienna, in Mátyás-templom, Budapest, and at Banffy Castle in Romania.
