Become a Friend


For participants, being in a choir is about more than just singing – it is also about forming new friendships, sharing the joy of common purpose, and building confidence and self-esteem in a safe and supportive community. If you believe in the transformative power of choral singing, please consider becoming a NYCOS Friend. 


National Girls Choir Participant

I really enjoyed being in the choir, making new friends and feeling like I am part of a music family. I love that I can be myself and sing with people who share the same interests as me. I loved everything about NYCOS Girls Choir
