Washington Heights Community Choir

A Choir for Upper Manhattan

Washington Heights Community Choir is a no-audition community chorus, one of a handful in NYC and the only choir of its kind located in Washington Heights/Upper Manhattan.

We provide community members of all ages and backgrounds who love to sing an opportunity to come together to learn music and perform. We believe that singing with and for our neighbors not only spreads much-needed joy but strengthens community bonds, too.
