CCS in rehearsal at historic United Church of Christ, Blooming Grove, NY

Sing with Classic Choral Society in 2017!


Monday evenings at 7:30 - 9:30 pm, beginning January 16, 2017
Classic Choral Society, formed in 1959, is a mixed-voice community chorus passionately devoted to presenting excellent, live performances of choral music throughout the year for the public to enjoy free of charge. There are openings in all sections: soprano, alto, tenor, bass. Auditions are not currently required; so don't let that keep you away. CCS received an invitation to sing at Carnegie Hall again this year, in mid-March, but plans are incomplete at this time; we do expect that our local concerts will be at the very end of April or in the early weeks of May.  You are urged to contact Director, Janiece ("Jan") Kohler, at 845-713-4543 prior to the rehearsal start-up date so we can have music ready for you.  Contact may also be made via email:

The Choral Society's rehearsal home is the historic Blooming Grove United Church of Christ, located at 2 Old Dominion Road (between Washingtonville and Chester on Route 94).  We rehearse weekly, from 7:30 until 9:30PM, in the sanctuary of the main BGUCC church building which is well-known for its wonderful, singer-friendly acoustics.  Please consider joining CCS!  It's a wonderful way to meet new friends, enjoy an inexpensive night out, and unwind from the stresses of being a busy adult.
