The Chorale

Now in its 54th season, The Taghkanic Chorale offers music lovers in Northern Westchester and surrounding communities the opportunity to sing and hear the greatest choral music of all eras from the Renaissance to contemporary composers. Throughout its history the Chorale has attracted music directors with enormous talent and unique ability to lift avocational singers to high levels of performance. Each year we gladly welcome new singers who are eager to experience the rich benefits of rehearsing and delivering fine choral music.


In June of 2013 the Chorale was one of twelve area musical groups selected
to participate in a Make Music New York event in Central Park. All groups joined to sing R. Murray Shafer's Credo for 12 choirs under the direction of George Steel. Other opportunities have included performing Verdi's Requiem at Carnegie Hall in a mass choir assembled by MidAmerica Productions and singing works by John Rutter at Carnegie Hall under the composer's direction.
