In 2004 Dr. Woomyung Choe, GNSO’s founding artistic director, launched the Newburgh Symphonic Chorale as the official chorus affiliated with the Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra. A series of distinguished choral directors, and a dedicated, talented membership of singers have made the Chorale the successful, highly regarded ensemble it has become over the past 14 years. Their individual performances have been well attended, and they’ve developed a strong following all on their own.
Over the past few years, the GNSO has focused on raising the quality and outreach of the orchestra – which has been remarkable, and attributable in no small part to the hard work of Music Director Russell Ger and our musicians. To continue moving this growth forward, a decision has been made to focus on the orchestra, instead of trying to develop both the orchestra and chorus. To that end, the Newburgh Symphonic Chorale is now officially an independent choral organization (and will henceforth be know as the Newburgh Chorale), and we encourage your continued support of their work.
Details about their upcoming concerts on December 22 and 30 are available at their website newburghchorale.org
