Now in its sixth year, the Chorale is led by Artistic Director and Conductor Thea Cano and consists of trained musicians from the greater New York City area. Its mission is to broaden public interest in fine choral music by performing a full range of musical styles at the highest level of quality. The New York City Master Chorale also educates the public through a regular program of outreach concerts and workshops for groups that might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn about and experience choral music.
The New York City Master Chorale has performed at a variety of venues, including: Riverside Church, Church of St. Paul the Apostle, Symphony Space, New York University’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and Avery Fisher Hall, as well as Carnegie Hall. The group made its European premiere in April, 2011.
