Who We Are

Greater New Haven Community Chorus is a non-auditioned, four part (SATB) singing organization with a membership of 100-plus voices.  Our singers have very diverse backgrounds—ranging from those who are highly skilled to those who have never sung in a ensemble before.  GNHCC provides a very welcoming and supportive atmosphere for everyone, music literacy training and skill-building is a part of every rehearsal.  In addition to our regular rehearsals and concerts, we organize many casual gatherings throughout the year which give members an opportunity to connect with each other on a social level—which, in turn, helps us to ‘gel’ with a more blended and unified sound during our concerts…and we have fun!

 

Mission Statement

Greater New Haven Community Chorus contributes to the personal and cultural enrichment of the community through the rehearsal and performance of outstanding choral music.  It achieves the highest standard of choral music by a non-auditioned chorus.  GNHCC educates chorus members and audiences alike and embraces the diversity of the community through its motto -- Building Community One Note at a Time

 

Artistic Vision

"The Next 50 Years"

Greater New Haven Community Chorus (GNHCC) will be the region's premier comprehensive choral arts program.  The organization will provide unique, diverse, and deeply rewarding experience in choral rehearsal, performance, and choral arts education to singers of all levels of ability.  With a focus on community music making and arts accessibility, GNHCC will foster and promote meaningful collaborations in the Greater New Haven community.
