About Us
The Conductors Club of New York is an association of male chorus conductors and singers founded in 1934.

Membership in the Conductors Club is not limited to conductors of male choral groups but includes singers, accompanists, and others involved with male choral singing.

If you are not a member and would like to attend a meeting, please contact us.

Members of the Conductors Club come from male choral groups that perform in New York State. These choruses include the Bayside Glee Club, Catskill Glee Club, Down Town Glee Club, Hendrick Hudson Male Chorus, Mendelssohn Club of Albany, Mendelssohn Club of Kingston, Mendelssohn Glee Club of New York City, and University Glee Club.

The public is cordially invited to attend all performances offered by member groups of the Conductors Club.

Each member club gives at least two performances a year, and the cost of admission is often nominal or by donation. Major performances are listed at the Conductors Club concert calendar. In addition member clubs give free performances throughout the year in venues from college campuses to senior care facilities and also sing at community and public events.

The clubs occasionally present joint performances and massed concerts. The last such event -- the 56th massed concert of the Mohawk-Hudson Male Choral Association -- was hosted by the Hendrick Hudson Male Chorus and held in East Greenbush, New York, in April 2014. Also participating were the Catskill Glee Club, the Mendelssohn Club of Albany, and the Mendelssohn Club of Kingston.
