Voices of Gotham may be young in age, but in only a few years, this group of singers have established themselves as one of the fastest rising performance choruses in New York City.
On January 8, 2008, a small group of singers that would become Voices of Gotham had its first meeting. This group gathered hoping to develop a fresh new a cappella offering for New York City. Three years later, we have just begun to reach our full potential and achieve that vision. We are thankful for all the leadership and support that has helped us get to where we are today, and excitedly look forward to even greater success and achievements.
Voices of Gotham is a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, the premier a cappella musical organization in the world. Its 35 members include professional actors and musicians, former college a cappella singers, and guys who simply enjoy raising their voices in song. The chorus’ membership has a median age of 27 years-old.
Repertoire includes classical, barbershop, vocal jazz, doo-wop, and contemporary a cappella selections. A sample cross-section of current repertoire is as follows: That Lonesome Road (James Taylor); No No Nora (barbershop – Clay Hine, arr.); Brown-Eyed Girl (contemporary – Van Morrison); and a medley of Let’s Do It and Let’s Misbehave (Cole Porter).
