AUDITION for cantori new york

Cantori New York is a four-time winner of the ASCAP Adventurous Programming Award – more than any other chorus in the Eastern United States. We tackle challenging repertoire in a rehearsal atmosphere that is focused, stimulating, and fun.

Cantori rehearses on Thursday evenings near Columbia University. To schedule an audition, please email

For your audition, we ask you to prepare one or more classical selections that you particularly like to sing (this can be solo or choral repertoire). We will ask you to sight-read, and do some brief exercises to explore your range and ear. While Cantori prefers experienced readers, we seek out good natural voices and intuitive musicians.

We listen to potential members throughout the year, and maintain a waiting list.
