About the Brooklyn Conservatory Chorale
Under the direction of Nelly Vuksic, the Chorale has been developing an increasingly challenging repertoire encompassing music from the Renaissance to the present, including premieres of new works as well as major works for chorus and orchestra such as Mozart’s Requiem, Poulenc’s Gloria, Vaughan Williams’ Toward the Unknown Region, and Brahms’s A German Requiem, presented in collaboration with the Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra and its music director, Dorothy Savitch.  In spring 2011, we presented an eclectic program reflecting American music from the 18th to the 20th centuries, from the poetic to bitingly sarcastic social commentary, and our January 2012 concert offers spiritual masterpieces of the Baroque, including Bach’s famous motet “Jesu, meine Freude” and Vivaldi’s Gloria.

The Brooklyn Conservatory Chorale continues to achieve new levels of musical and organizational accomplishment, and to attract talented singers who contribute to the group’s improvement and enthusiasm.  The members of the Chorale enjoy a dynamic, friendly and highly musical atmosphere, working and growing together to reach new levels.  We also expand our geographic scope by singing in various Brooklyn neighborhoods.  We invite all who are interested to join us in our music-making and in the joy of singing.
