EVC Concert Choir

The EVC Concert Choir is designed to meet the needs of our singers aged 11-17 who seek rigorous choral training and professional performance opportunities. The Concert Choir collaborates with adult vocal and instrumental ensembles as well as composers and other performing artists for performances, recordings, and other events. The Concert Choir has performed at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium and Zankel Hall, Merkin Hall, CitiField, and other premier New York City venues in collaboration with adult choirs including The Cecilia Chorus, Cantori New York, and the Teachers College Choir. Other performances include Performa Biennial and appearances in film (Sony Pictures) and television.

The Concert Choir is EVC's only ensemble that requires an audition to join. Auditions have an informal feel; in the audition process, the Music Director assesses singers' vocal development and ability to learn challenging musical passages, and learns about students as performers as they sing a song they choose. Accepted singers and their families must commit to the rehearsal and performance schedule. In order to perform, singers must demonstrate their ability to successfully sing all repertoire in rehearsals; building this proficiency may require regular independent practice and/or extra rehearsals.  

EVC Concert Choir rehearses weekly on Fridays 4-6 pm at Columbia University Teachers College (525 W 120th St). EVC Concert Choir will return to its sixth performance at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium in December 2024, performing Leonard Bernstein's Mass with The Cecilia Chorus of New York and Orchestra.
