Founded in 1966, the New Amsterdam Singers is a critically acclaimed chorus of 70+ voices, performing in and around New York City under the direction of Clara Longstreth. Through adventurous programs, commissions and premieres, and collaborations with other ensembles, we strive to nurture and expand New York City’s dynamic choral community.
New Amsterdam Singers begins the season with music of hope and praise from composers both familiar and lesser known, including William Byrd, Heinrich Schütz, and Dietrich Buxtehude. We’ll return to a favorite motet by J.S. Bach, “Lobet den Herrn”, and perform works by the Italian Renaissance composer Salamone Rossi for the first time, presenting two of his psalm settings in Hebrew. The 20th and 21st centuries are represented by Czech composer Petr Eben, Ēriks Ešenwalds of Latvia, and Americans John Chorbajian and Zanaida Robles.
