Ars Choralis is a nonprofit organization dedicated to celebrating the human spirit through the performance of choral music of all periods and styles. We believe music has the power to transcend all barriers of language, culture, race, class, and emotion to unite people facing a world of increasing factionalism and violence.
Drawing its membership from throughout the Hudson River Valley, Ars Choralis reflects the area’s diverse artistic community, including professional musicians, writers, teachers, lawyers, nurses, builders, students, clergy, gardeners, editors, etc. Though diverse in their professions and backgrounds, members share a common joy of singing, and a deep spirituality that imbues every performance with a special quality.
Since igniting the musical life of the Woodstock, NY arts community with its first concert on June 12, 1965, the group has been unfailing in its effort to perform the world’s finest choral music, from renowned masterworks to chorale chamber music of all genres to new commissions and premieres.
