Not only were the voices amazing, the song choices perfect for the environment, but the planning and post-concert tasks (payment) were super easy. Dealing with Greg was a pleasure. Very organized & efficient and exceptionally accommodating.

Kudos for the Choristers from Samantha Last, MRY Company Holiday Party

We Missed You!

After a virtual year, we're looking forward to once again spreading the best holiday cheer around New York City. Our rehearsals for our best-in-the-industry music will be starting on schedule, and we're finalizing our health & safety protocols as the news and vaccination rates evolve.

We also have a library of virtual offerings for those of you outside of New York City. These range from pre-recorded virtual videos (featured on PIX11 news in 2020) with professional & fun graphics, animations, and more, to "live-to-broadcast" performances. We're finalizing our in-person and virtual offerings, and we're so glad to be back — so watch this space!

Classic & contemporary versions of your favorites, in a single group.

We love Christmas carols and holiday music so much, we had a hard time choosing between being a “traditional, classic” group versus a “contemporary” ensemble… so we didn't! The New York Holiday Choristers are the only professional caroling ensemble in New York City featuring both classic and true vocal jazz/contemporary styling — and all in-between. Our contemporary arrangements are hip, jazz-influenced, and reminiscent of modern acappella (without beatboxing, of course), while our standard arrangements combine the classical arrangements you know and love with a fresh harmonic twist. By providing both styles, we bring unrivaled flexibility to your event, perfect for when you're looking to add something a little cooler than regular, simple carolers. Why force yourself to choose?

And while some of our contemporary songs wander off into 3/4 jazz-swing and twisting time signatures, and our ballads stack luscious harmonies, and our standard carols treat the originals with respect while simultaneously changing them up, we always have our fingers on the pulse of your event to make sure we fill our role. It's simply, flat-out the best music in the industry, expertly crafted, finely rehearsed, and perfomed with excitement.

Professional & Polished

A Love For The Season

All of our Choristers & management love the holiday season, and we love creating memories for our clients and their guests even more. That's why the New York Holiday Choristers charm and delight our customers and their event's guests, wherever we raise our voices in song. We create memories.

Experienced & Refined

With over twenty years' private event experience, the team behind the New York Holiday Choristers also has been bringing holiday acappella to New York City since 2009, been profiled on CBS Sunday Morning, appearing on Fox 5 WNYW's Friday Night Live, The Rachael Ray Show, WFUV's Cityscape, WQXR's The Arts File, Fox News, and many more. Our company is fully-insured, and we know how to make every performance extraordinary.

The Finest Music

Most of our songs are our own versions of classic Christmas carols & holiday favorites set in rich 4-part harmonies. Our musically-gratifying book is more like what you hear from professional acappella ensembles than simple carols, and our Choristers rehearse for months to master our book. It's a sound that's truly "New York"… No other company comes close!

Classic? Contemporary? Both!

With the Choristers, you don't have to choose between traditional & modern carols -- our single ensemble masters both! And as we say, our music's best-in-class. Don't take our word for it: our music's been featured & played on WFUV, WQXR, and more, and performed by other choirs and ensembles nationwide!

Audio Clips

Our contemporary, vocal jazz "Carol of the Bells" features a cool jazz swing feel. We keep the traditional feel of "Deck the Halls" but with our own interesting harmonic twists! Based on Celtic Woman's stunning version, we adapted it into mixed harmony for a beautiful result. Fantastic harmonic twists in and out of clusters feature in our take on this traditional favorite. "Jingle Bells" gets a high-energy swing treatment in one of our most fun songs! Easy-breezy swing plus fun chords and a bass solo make our version of "Let It Snow" fresh and new. Sung in a high-energy jazz waltz, our take on "My Favorite Things" gets feet tapping! While not strictly a holiday song, "Pure Imagination" perfectly captures the spirit of the holidays.
