What it's like to sing with us:
Expect to perform in 2 to 3 self-produced concert cycles in both Manhattan and Brooklyn during any given season. Performance venue locations & types vary according to the concert concept.
Pedagogy is a core part of the Choral Chameleon ethos: The Chorus is expected to participate in the Winter Institute in early January, as a lab choir for student conductors. The Institute involves an intensive commitment of several evening rehearsals during one week, culminating with a performance in the public Winter Institute concert on Friday.
Our singers also frequently accept invitations to perform in 3rd party theatrical or interdisciplinary productions in New York, often with minimal rehearsal time. We're looking for singers of all ages and musical backgrounds who are open to doing just about anything and who can be confident readers and performers without extensive coaching. Choral Chameleon is one of the best choirs to join in New York City for adult avocational singers who want to stretch as performers and musicians!
We have begun to record some of our projects. These projects are recorded on separate days to performances.
