Hudson Chorale 2016


Welcome to the website of the Hudson Chorale. We are an 70-voice chorus, beginning our seventh season on the concert stages of Westchester.  We are a collegial group of men and women of all ages and musical backgrounds, and our repertoire includes a wide range of choral literature.  Whether performing the great masterpieces or newly commissioned works, our goal is to provide both audience members and singers with the best possible experience in choral singing.

A Message from our Music Director!

Ira Spaulding at Piano

“My love of choral music is part of a triangular relationship.  At one corner of the triangle is the composer, whose notes are waiting to be heard.  In another corner are the performers, the musicians who strive to understand the notes and bring them to life.  Are you wondering who is in the third corner?  It is YOU, the public.  We want to share our love of choral music with you.  Come to our concerts and (re)discover for yourself the joy of choral music.  We are waiting for YOU!”

Please explore our site to learn more about us, our history, mission, artists, and our upcoming concerts and events.  And then, come hear us – and join us!
