Friends of the Chorale

The National Chorale is New York City’s premier professional choral organization. Founded in 1967 by Martin Josman, it is the only professional company to have established and maintained 51 seasons of choral/orchestral concert series in a major New York concert hall at Lincoln Center with additional concerts at Carnegie Hall.

Now under the Artistic Direction of Everett McCorvey the Chorale continues its tradition of excellence in education and performance as it celebrates its 51st Anniversary.

Why Give?

The National Chorale, celebrating 51 years of Excellence in Education and Performance is working hard to maintain a positive and supportive presence not only in New York at Lincoln Center but in concerts halls and schools throughout all of the boroughs in New York and surrounding states.  The Teaching Artists of the National Chorale teach in every Borough in New York helping to insure the future of the arts in New York and beyond.  The National Chorale’s mission centers around inspiring diverse audiences through education and performance and increasing awareness of music’s power to engage and inform through artistic expression.  We bring people together through the love of music.  This is a tradition which we want to continue.
