Chora Nova, directed by Paul Flight, is an auditioned chorus based in Berkeley, California, that draws experienced singers from around the Bay Area. The group presents three programs each year, with performances in November, March, and May.
We welcome potential new members to audition for the chorus at the beginning of weekly rehearsals for each concert set (in September, January, and late March).
This season’s programming remains a work in progress, due to the ongoing dislocation of all our lives brought on by COVID 19. As soon as possible, Chora Nova will return to live performances.
Meanwhile, however, we are pleased to offer you a rare opportunity for participation in virtual rehearsal and concert performance via Zoom.
Rehearsals Tuesdays at 7:15, April 6 through May 18
Virtual concert 11 a.m. Saturday, May 22
Raise your voice with Chora Nova for Bach Fest, a celebration of one of the greatest composers in European history. One of his most beloved larger works, Magnificat in D, is the centerpiece; his transcendent motet, O Jesu Christ, mein Lebens Licht, rounds out the program. Professional soloists will perform with us from their homes.
Registration for the Spring quarter is now closed.
