Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, NYU Choral Arts offerings are reduced for the Fall 2021 semester. Only one ensemble, NYU Chorale, will be offered — and in a completely online format. Unfortunately, Women’s Choir, University Singers, NYU A Cappella Choir, and NYU Jazz Choir will not be offered in the Fall 2021 semester.
The Women’s Choir, directed by Chantel Wright, is an ensemble of 60 voices devoted to the highest quality literature in a wide variety of musical styles.
Who Can Join
All choruses are open to the NYU community (students, faculty, and staff) and community at large, by audition.
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.
The Women’s Choir meets Tuesdays from 7 - 8:30pm.
Performances and Concerts
The Women’s Choir presents one or two concerts each semester.
Concerts are streamed live and recorded for archival purposes.
