"I like being in the chorus because of the nice variety of music that we have such as folk music, classical, old popular standards, show tunes religious, spirituals.
Mary is a great conductor because she's very knowledgable about music, very supportive, and makes the sessions fun. I learned a lot from her.
I like that chorus rehearsals are only once a week for just 2 hours as I'm busy since I work.
The chorus members are very nice and I have formed friendships with some of the people in the group. I have done a lot of solos which I enjoy besides singing with the group."

"I was warmly welcomed into the chorus and have learned so much! I still cannot read music but every year I learn to sing beautiful classical pieces as well as show tunes and traditional songs.
Our director Mary is a wonderful conductor - demanding and supportive with an encyclopedic knowledge and passion for music of all kinds, choral music in particular. Under her leadership we have sung Haydn and Hoagy Carmichael, Bach and Bachrach, madrigals and Broadway ballads. It's been a very rewarding experience and I look forward to each term."

"When I was given the opportunity to sing in a choir I did not know I would experience so much joy. I had always loved hearing music created « together « and Voices of New York did not disappoint me.
Mary is a wonderful musician, a fun and strong teacher/conductor, her eclectic music choices are inspiring and I can’t wait for the next concert rehearsals to resume!"
