Since Paul Flight’s departure as our Artistic in Director in June, 2023, Chora Nova has been exploring the way forward. We will present our usual three concerts in the coming season under the direction of guest conductors as we begin the search for a new Artistic Director. We are pleased to announce that Derek Tam will be the guest conductor for our concerts in November 2023 and March 2024, and Ash Walker will be the guest conductor for our concert in May 2024.

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).
