ARE YOU A LEGAL PROFESSIONAL (OR SOON TO BE) WHO LOVES TO SING?
IF SO, WE’RE LOOKING FOR YOU!
TOP 5 REASONS TO JOIN US:
1. WE SERVE as goodwill ambassadors of the New York City Bar Association to bring the healing power of music to those who cannot easily access it. Over the past 25 years, we have changed the public’s view of lawyers for the better, one performance at a time.
2. WE SING interesting choral arrangements spanning musical theater, jazz, R&B, pop/rock, spiritual/gospel and classical styles. Whether your prior singing experience has been in school/community classical chorus, sacred choir, contemporary a cappella group, musical theater or carpool karaoke, you’ll find lots to enjoy in our music. Watch/hear us at: https://youtu.be/osxulPh_7H4 (20th Anniversary “Greatest Hits”).
3. WE REHEARSE three Tuesday evenings per month, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM, at a midtown Manhattan BigLaw firm — producing a pro-quality sound in <50% of the rehearsal time of other local choruses. Our rehearsal and performance schedules are designed to fit easily into busy legal professionals’ lives. We take the summers off! 4. WE PERFORM at senior residences, nursing homes, centers for the visually impaired, cancer patient residences, rehab facilities, the elegant landmark NYC Bar headquarters, ABA Annual Meetings and even Off-Broadway! For flexibility, you get to choose from among several outreach concerts in every performance cycle based on your date and location preferences. 5. WE CONNECT with like-minded legal professionals and create social and business networking opportunities through music while giving back meaningfully to our community. Members also experience the proven stress-busting, camaraderie-building and health-boosting benefits of group singing. HAVE WE MADE OUR CASE?
