2021 COA Collaborative Concert Series

Choirs of America
2021 Collaborative Concert Series
New York City


With COA’s NYC-based Collaborative Concert Series, you and your Choir can get in-depth with your performance… rehearsing, studying, and performing for several days with one of COA’s Master Conductors. You’ll also have plenty of time for sightseeing in “The Big Apple.”

The COA Collaborative Concert Series is perfect for those who love taking time to dive just a bit deeper into choral scores to explore beloved genres with an expert in the field. Our themed collaborative concerts are truly a mountain-top experience for choirs. Join us and collaborate with other exceptional groups from across the country for your upcoming concert performance in Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center!

“To my choral music educator friends, I would like to highly recommend Choirs of America festivals. I’ve been teaching for 31 years, and have never participated in a finer, more organized or better run festival.”
