community made through music

Grace Chorale of Brooklyn is an 85-member chorus based in Brooklyn Heights dedicated to the performance and promotion of choral singing in Brooklyn. In this our 42nd year, our concerts, performing partnerships, and educational outreach events continue to offer a wide variety of choral music to audiences throughout the Borough, and provide amateur singers of varied experience the opportunity to study the art of choral singing under the dynamic and professional leadership of Music Director Jason Asbury and Assistant Music Director Matt Podd.

We are also very proud of our commissioning program: For nearly a decade, Grace Chorale of Brooklyn has commissioned a wide variety of choral works by talented New York City composers as part of our mission to support living composers and expand the choral repertoire of the 21st century. The Chorale values our collaboration with them and the wonderful opportunity to breathe life into the work they compose for us.
