Come sing with Westchester’s highly acclaimed community chorus, Hudson Chorale. The group is welcoming new members in all voice parts (SATB) to join for an exciting concert season of great, much-loved choral music.

Hudson Chorale’s upcoming January 2020 program is a choral singer’s dream, featuring the rock stars of the 18th-19th century composing world and some of their most beloved creations:  Beethoven’s Mass in C, Haydn’s Paukenmesse (Mass in Time of War), and Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus.   This celebration of German music will take place on January 25 & 26, 2020 at the magnificent Chapel at Maryknoll in Ossining. Our Spring 2020 concert will celebrate our Hudson Valley heritage with English, Dutch and American hymns and folk songs.

Music Director Maestro Ira Spaulding is a choral conductor, singer and master class instructor whose career spans 40 years of performance in more than 60 countries.  He is currently Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York and maintains a career abroad as a singer, teacher and conductor.  Our Accompanist/Assistant Music Director, David Baranowski, is a household name to choral singers in the Westchester area due to his virtuosity on piano, keyboard, organ and harpsichord.
