NYU Chorale


NYU Chorale

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 will take place on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 from 7:00-10:00 pm.
