About Us

About Us

Ars Musica is a musical melting pot—16 different national backgrounds, at last count. It is the love of music that binds us.

In 1965, Ars Musica began as a small community chorus. More than fifty years later, Ars Musica continues to offer singers the opportunity to perform a wide variety of great music. Our concerts frequently feature soloists and instrumentalists from the rosters of the Metropolitan area’s renowned opera companies and professional symphony orchestras.

Recognized as one of the most accomplished choruses in the area, the chorus has regularly been invited to perform as guest artist in such venues as Carnegie Hall (with Opera Orchestra of New York), Columbia University’s landmark St. Paul’s Chapel, and St. John the Baptist Cathedral in Paterson, NJ. The Chorale has traveled abroad, performing throughout Europe and as far as St. Petersburg, Russia. A highlight of Ars Musica’s tour of Austria in 2006, Mozart’s commemorative year, was the group’s participation in the Salzburg Choral Festival.

Our performances adhere to the highest standards, as we continue to dedicate ourselves to upholding the heritage of greatness and beauty in choral music. Our roster includes professional singers and dedicated amateurs, all of whom devote hours each week to rehearsals and supporting activities. Many of our members have belonged to Ars Musica for a decade or more, and form the core of this highly cooperative and cohesive group; newcomers are always sought. Our rehearsals are distinguished by a genuine sense of camaraderie among the members who come together to sing some of the world’s most beautiful choral compositions.


The Mission of Ars Musica is to:
•  Craft excellent programs of a wide range of choral music
•  Provide choral singers with challenging, instructive, and rewarding opportunities to make music together, and to
•  Enrich and educate the community by offering the excitement of live performance to a broad audience.
