The Cecilia Chorus of New York cultivates a rich and diverse community of musicians, composers and concert-goers to create distinctive choral experiences and performances that inform, challenge and uplift the human spirit.


We are a widely recognized, highly regarded mixed chorus devoted to performing great choral music. With a membership of approximately 150 dedicated singers, we have been making our contribution to New York's musical life for over 100 years. Each season we perform at least two major concerts at Carnegie Hall with a professional orchestra and soloists. Our repertoire is drawn from four centuries of challenging choral masterpieces.  All musically qualified persons are invited to audition to become members of our chorus.
