GOTHAM ROCK CHOIR (GRC) is NYC's first and only community choir devoted to Pop, Rock and Soul music.
Every Tuesday night from 7-9 PM, members of GRC gather to rehearse classic and contemporary tunes by artists such as Queen, Bon Jovi, Black Eyed Peas, Jackie Wilson, The Beatles and many more--all in four-part harmony. It's like "Glee" for adults!
Founded in 2009 to provide an alternative to traditional choirs and to give choral singing a much-needed sense of "cool," GRC provides a safe and supportive environment for singers of all experience levels, from professional performers to karaoke fans to avid shower singers.
GRC produces several performance events a year, including member cabaret evenings and full choir concerts. Some of the venues we've played: The Knitting Factory, off-Broadway's Players Theatre, Times Square Arts Center, The Duplex Cabaret Theatre, The Triad, and Medicine Show Theatre.
We're currently looking for more singers to join the choir this summer. Music-reading ability or previous choral experience not required. All you need to have is a good ear for music and a passion for singing. We have a special need at the moment for Tenors and Basses, but all are encouraged. Adults only, please.
Please note that there is a nominal Member Fee to join GRC. It comes out to roughly $7-8 per rehearsal and is used to defray expenses such as rehearsal and performance space rental, sheet music, etc.
