ECMC in ChoralFest USA

  • Symphony Space 2537 Broadway New York, NY, 10025 United States

Empire City Men's Chorus is proud to be a participating choir in ChoralFest USA 2015.

From the ChoralFest USA website:

"This annual event, held at Symphony Space on Broadway and 95th Street in New York City, will feature dozens of choirs from the New York region and beyond, singing in a FREE marathon concert. Each choir selected through the application process will perform for 15 to 20 minutes. Audience members may come and go, or remain the entire time. 

Towards the conclusion of each concert, The New York Virtuoso Singers, ChoralFest USA's resident professional choir founded and conducted by Artistic Director Harold Rosenbaum, will perform. The final performance will include the audience and choirs in a sing-along of Randall Thompson’s most popular work, “Alleluia.” Our hope and dream is to give choirs public exposure in an important New York City venue, to inspire choir directors to explore the vast repertoire of American choral music for future concerts, and to instill and reinforce a love of American choral music to audience members."

The June 14, 2015 concert will be free and open to the public. Doors open at 2:30 pm. In the spirit of Symphony Space’s legendary “Wall to Wall” events, audience members may come and go as they please, subject to seating availability, throughout the day.

Participating choirs include:
