WELCOME TO NEW YORK CITY’S COOLEST CHOIR!
GOTHAM ROCK CHOIR is New York City’s first community choir devoted to Rock, Pop, Motown & Broadway/Film music.
Founded in 2009, Gotham Rock Choir was formed to provide an outlet for singers of all levels and backgrounds to explore contemporary music in a supportive, fun, uplifting environment, to provide an alternative to the city’s many traditional choirs and to provide much-needed sense of “cool” to choral singing.
Each week, a diverse group of 40 New Yorkers from all walks of life–ranging from show business professionals to avid shower singers–gather at a rehearsal studio in Midtown Manhattan to belt out an eclectic mix of music in stunning 4-part harmony in preparation for a final concert held at an off-Broadway theatre. Many of our singers also choose to perform in our “Gotham Rock Choir: Unplugged” cabaret evenings, which give our members the opportunity to work on their own favorite tunes for performance at one of the city’s most famous cabaret venues.
Gotham Rock Choir is frequently invited to perform some exciting outside gigs. We sang backup for the National Tour of Broadway’s “Rocktopia” with Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) and Constantine Maroulis (“American Idol”), performed with Universal platinum recording artists The Tenors, both on national television (NBC’s “Today”) and at Town Hall, sang the National Anthem at both Madison Square Garden and the Barclay Center, shot a commercial for Budweiser, sang at the opening ceremony of the New York City Veteran’s Day Parade, serenaded runners in the New York City Marathon and performed at The Knitting Factory.
Over the years, Gotham Rock Choir has been the artistic home for hundreds of vocalists of different ages, backgrounds and skill levels who share one thing in common: a real passion for singing.
