The Dessoff Choirs is one of New York City’s leading choruses, and is known for pioneering performances of choral works from the pre-Baroque era through the 21st century.


Auditions are by appointment only. Please contact us with your name and voice part. You do not need to bring a prepared piece. The audition consists of the following:

  • Vocalises
  • Pitch memory exercise
  • Sight reading
  • Text recitation (French, German, Latin)

The Singing Scholars Program

Each year since 2009, Dessoff has invited several talented New York City high school students to join the choir for one concert cycle, giving them the chance to rehearse and perform on an adult level. Students must be recommended by a teacher or choir director, and pass an audition with Dessoff’s music director.

Rehearsals are Monday evenings, 7-10 PM on the Upper East Side. If you are interested in joining us, please contact
