Membership & Auditions

Calling all 'Glee'gal Eagles who are tenors, baritones and basses! Do you watch The Voice or The Sing-Off and wish you had another chance to sing in a group? How about a flexible, diverse and friendly (non-dancing) chorus featured on NY1 News as New Yorkers of the Week? Would you enjoy singing sophisticated arrangements of great music, ranging from Queen to ABBA, Gershwin to gospel, and West Side Story to Pippin and Wicked?

The 85-voice New York City Bar Chorus ("CBC") is conducting limited auditions (brief, private and low-pressure) in the summer of 2014 for its fall 2014 cycle. We rehearse two or three Tuesday evenings per month, from 6:45 to 8:15 PM, in midtown Manhattan (Radio City/Rock Center area) to produce what our audiences describe as a professional-quality sound. We perform frequently, serving our community by bringing music to people in group residences and medical facilities and also singing for luminaries of the bench and bar. We also provide a forum for legal professionals to meet and sing together in a warm, fun and supportive environment offering many social and business networking opportunities. Prior choral or a cappella experience is preferred but not mandatory. Music-reading or sight-reading ability is helpful but not required if you have a "good ear." You also don't have to be a salesperson -- unlike other choruses, we don't require members to sell tickets, and annual dues are modest. Come help us celebrate our 21st year of spreading musical joy.

If you practice or study law, or otherwise work in a law firm, in-house corporate or government law department, court, law school, legal non-profit, or any other legal setting, whether as a lawyer or non-lawyer, and would like to join us, please e-mail us as soon as possible at
