The Dessoff Choirs rehearses every Monday evening, roughly between Labor Day and Memorial Day, on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Depending on the performing schedule, Saturday and other daytime rehearsals may also be required.
Dessoff is a dues organization, and members buy their own music. In many seasons, these fees can exceed $200 per member. Dessoff is governed by a Board of Directors selected from the Singing Membership. Members are also expected to sell tickets to concerts, help attract individual, corporate, and foundation donors, and participate fully in the life of the chorus.
Auditions for singing members are held in late summer and throughout the year by appointment; call (212) 831-8224 or send email to schedule an audition. For more details, click here.
Professional singers who wish to be considered for solo opportunities with the Dessoff Choirs should send a resume and representative recording to The Dessoff Choirs, P.O. Box 1337, New York, NY 10028.
Contributing Membership is available to anyone who wants to support the performance mission of The Dessoff Choirs. [Click here for more information.]
