About
 
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, 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 concerts offered by member groups of the Conductors Club.

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