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).

2021-22 Season

Paul Flight, Chora Nova Artistic Director

Chora Nova plans to return to live performance on November 20, now that state and county health rules permit in-person events. We open the new season joyously, with an all-Vivaldi program featuring full Baroque orchestra:

Gloria RV 589
Dixit Dominus RV 807


Because the public-health situation is still fluid, March and May programs will be announced later.
