With this first recording, we are pleased to introduce ourselves as the newest children’s choir in town; a community-based children’s chorus founded in 2012, steeped in the bel canto tradition of singing that claims classical music as its heart and soul. And what is for a young singer more at the core of the Western musical tradition than the art song?

Across the United States and Canada, the community-based Children’s Choir movement is growing and thriving. Outstanding conductors achieving exceptionally high artistic standards, teaching healthy singing, performing the musical gems of the Western art tradition, are building and growing community-based children’s chorus programs across the 50 states and 10 provinces. From Seattle and Pittsburgh to Washington, D.C. and Toronto, with hundreds of points in between, children in choirs are learning the arias of Bach and Handel alongside the songs of Copland and Bernstein.

Art song is one of the most central musical forms used in teaching a young singer about technique and performance. Every serious young singer begins their vocal study with these works: first in Italian, then German, French, and English. So this is where the New York City Children’s Chorus begins, as well. In addition to learning choral masterworks, both old and new, every chorister at the NYCCC learns a core repertoire of art songs throughout their study here. We offer to you our first recording, “Simple Gifts”, our study of English and American Art Songs of the first half of the 20th Century.
