New York City Community Chorus

New York City Community Chorus

New York City Community Chorus is a non-sectarian community chorus located at 28th St. and 9th Ave. in Manhattan. 

Our mission is to restore the joy of singing to day-to-day life, and to heal our community through singing. Since November 1994 we have brought the thrill of singing to hundreds of people, and our concerts have entertained thousands more. 


Rehearsals for our spring season begin on Monday, January 23, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm. No audition, just show up at 296 Ninth Avenue at 28th Street. Our June concert will be all music of women composers. Here’s a partial list of some of our composers and songs:

  • Barbara Strozzi (17th century Venetian)

We also require members to wear a mask, preferably an N95, at all times.
