Administrative/Biographical History

The Concert Choir of New Orleans was formed on January 5, 1959. Fifty-four singing members soon joined and on May 22, 1959, at Tulane's Dixon Hall, the choir presented its first concert.


The Concert Choir was a volunteer, nonprofit organization governed by officers and a board of directors chosen at the group's annual meeting. Choir members were chosen through auditioning, and the choir usually consisted of forty-five to sixty members.


Administrative and performance expenses were covered by dues, donations, ticket sales, and program advertising. There were no salaries except those of Musical Director and the Accompanist. Programs ranged from classical to contemporary, with an emphasis on seldom performed compositions.


Almost forty-three years after it began, the Concert Choir of New Orleans disbanded in December, 2001.
