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 (disbanded in 2017), Mendelssohn Club of Albany, Mendelssohn Club of Kingston, Mendelssohn Glee Club of New York City, Northeast Men's Summer Chorus, 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 most recent such event -- the 58th massed concert of the Mohawk-Hudson Male Choral Association -- was hosted by the Mendelssohn Club of Albany in Rensselaer, New York, on April 14, 2018.  Also participating were the  Mendelssohn Club of Kingston and the Catskill Glee Club.

The Mendelssohn Glee Club of New York City celebrated its 150th anniversary with a concert on May 10, 2016, at Merkin Hall in New York. The performance featured eight soloists from the world of opera, including Metropolitan Opera stars soprano Aprile Millo and tenor Barry Banks. The club sang selections of historical significance from its 150-year repertoire. A second gala concert is planned for December 13, with a new program and guest artists.
