NYChoral (New York Choral Society) has been presenting its popular series of Summer Sings, open readings of beloved choral masterworks, since 1960. We provide the conductor, venue, piano accompanist, soloists, music scores, and YOU are the chorus! We will all sing through a popular choral standard, and then enjoy an after-party, with drinks and snacks included. 

Sings will be held at 7pm (doors open at 6:30pm) at Church of the Holy Trinity, Draesel Hall, 316 E. 88th St. (between 2nd and 1st Avenue; enter at gate nearest 2nd Avenue and go up the steps on your right). 

Ticket price is $15 and may be purchased in advance using the above BPT links, or at the door.. Printed scores will be available for use at each Sing but you are encouraged to bring your own or upload an electronic version to your tablet if possible. Singers bringing their own score (hardcopy or e-score) will receive an extra raffle ticket at the door. 

If you are considering auditioning with us for the regular season, attending the NYChoral Summer Sings is a great way to our music staff and some current NYChoral members (learn more about auditions here).

So please join us this August at the NYChoral Summer Sings -- sing, eat, drink, and be merry!
