NYU Chorale Performance

NYU Chorale

Music and Performing Arts Professions Ensembles

NYU Chorale, conducted by Paul Speiser, is the largest classical choral ensemble at New York University. For 130 years, it has served the entire NYU community performing major works from the choral/orchestral repertoire. The NYU Chorale offers singers an in-depth performance experience of large-scale choral works.

Who Can Join

All choruses are open to the NYU community (students, faculty, and staff) and community at large, by audition.

Audition Information

Auditions are taking place on the afternoon of Saturday, January 25, 2020 starting at 12:00 pm. If all the available times on Saturday are taken, we will continue hearing auditions on the afternoon of Sunday, January 26, 2020.


The audition will consist of 

  • A vocal solo, chosen by the singer. Please limit it to no more than 2 minutes in length. The song can be in any style and sung in any language. The song is expected to be sung with piano accompaniment; an accompanist will be provided. Please bring a score for the pianist (a photocopy is fine).
  • Sight singing.
  • Pitch matching and vocal range exercises.

The only thing you need to bring to your audition is a score for the pianist.

Rehearsal Information

NYU Chorale meets Tuesday evening from 7-9pm.

Performances and Concerts

NYU Chorale presents one or two concerts each semester.


Concerts are streamed live and recorded for archival purposes.
