Winner of the 2015 ASCAP/Chorus America award for Adventurous Programming, Choral Chameleon is known for championing New Music for voices within the context of mixed-genre thematic programming and experiments in non-traditional staging.
Founded in 2008, by Artistic Director Vince Peterson, the organization now encompasses: a roster of professional ensemble singers, a volunteer chorus of 30-40 adults and an annual week-long Summer Institute for emerging composers and conductors hosted in Brooklyn.
The culture of the organization marries informality, loving support and joyful curiosity, with the expectation of solidly technical musicianship, constant learning and openness towards the unexpected.
Choral Chameleon’s own programming ethos seeks to dilate audience sensibilities towards the new; by the way it is paired with the familiar and by treating both with the respect they deserve.
Guest appearances this season include: ‘Taylor Mac: A 24-Decade History of Popular Music’ at St Ann’s Warehouse, Opera America’s ‘New Opera Showcase’ at Town Hall and Sxip Shirey’s album launch event in January 2017, and Caroline Polachek’s Album Release show of Drawing the Target Around the Arrow at National Sawdust.
