Community Sing: Westminster Choir

Advent Lutheran Church
Experience the magic of ensemble singing by attending one of Carnegie Hall’s Community Sings—designed for all ages, no experience necessary. You’ll learn what it takes to be a member of these dynamic groups and experience the power of singing for yourself.

Setting the standard for choral excellence for almost a century, the legendary Westminster Choir’s immaculate technique and exquisite musicality has won them international recognition and countless Grammy awards. These young choristers, part of the larger Westminster Symphonic Choir, have performed around the world with major orchestras (over 300 performances with the New York Philharmonic alone) under virtually every household-name conductor from the last 70 years, including Arturo Toscanini, Leopold Stokowski, Eugene Ormandy, Leonard Bernstein, and Riccardo Muti.
