Chora Nova, directed by Paul Flight, is a dynamic community of singers based in Berkeley, California. The group presents three programs each year, with performances in November, March, and May.
Chora Nova’s varied repertoire has included Western music, both familiar and rarely performed, from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries: Vivaldi and Zelenka, Mozart and Michael Haydn, Brahms and Hummel, Britten and Coleridge-Taylor.
Chora Nova, an auditioned chorus, draws experienced singers from around the Bay Area.
