The Brooklyn Community Chorus is an independent community choir in Park Slope, Brooklyn, open to anyone who loves to sing a variety of music, both sacred and secular, classical and popular, historic and contemporary. We draw our conductors and soloists exclusively from within the chorus and from the local community; and our choice of repertoire is often determined by popular consent of the group rather than imposed by a single music director. It is this spirit of democratic community that makes the Brooklyn Community Chorus unique, and a truly community organization. In addition to our full concert in June, we perform at various community venues and events throughout the year. All ages welcome, no auditions needed.

Founded in 1924, the Dessoff Choirs is one of New York’s strongest choral organizations. Beginning in the 1930s, the group pioneered the performing and recording of music by pre-Bach masters, much of which was later published by Theodore Presser as The Dessoff Choir Series. While its repertoire has widened to include music from all periods, Dessoff continues to present choral works of significant quality that are not yet part of the canon of choral singing. In 1999 Dessoff won the ASCAP/Chorus America Award for Adventurous Programming.

Attendance varies from week to week, and we try to tailor the music to the vocal ranges of those who show up. We consider ourselves amateurs, although all have had musical training. The current "regulars" include pianists, string players, semi-professional singers, composers, and others with a deep interest in the music we sightread.

First published in 1844, The Sacred Harp is the most enduringly beloved of the classic 19th century songbooks written in shape notes, an ingenious system designed as a musical teaching aid. Boisterous camp meeting ranters; ancient folk melodies; haunting, almost medieval-sounding dirges and fuging tunes are sung a cappella with the singers facing each other in a square. The result is dynamic, frequently raw, and often achingly beautiful. No experience necessary. All voices welcome.

Part of a long tradition on college campuses. This ensemble of choristers was founded when Manhattan College was an all-male school as the Manhattan College Glee Club. When the college became a co-educational institution the name was changed to The Manhattan College Singers. The Singers have performed at many campus events including masses to celebrate both the beginning and ending of the school year, as well as academic convocations. The Singers have toured on a number of occasions to Europe singing in Paris, London and Rome. Membership is open at the beginning of each semester to any student, faculty or staff member, alumnus or alumna, or community member.

The Renaissance Street Singers of New York is a unique organization founded in 1973. We sing 15th- and 16th-century sacred polyphony a cappella on the sidewalks and in the public spaces of New York City, about 26 Sunday afternoons a year. There are no dues, and all concerts are free; you don’t have to sell tickets to your friends. The current repertoire is constantly changing, but we keep singing the pieces we like best. You just need to be able to sight-read, keep your vibrato in check, and attend regularly.
