We are excited to share that RCS has resumed biweekly rehearsals via virtual means

in hopes of an early Spring 2021 performance. 




If you like to sing and are interested in becoming a member, now is a great time to take advantage of the opportunity to see what we’re all about, meet our members, and join us as we rehearse a variety of holiday choral repertoire!


AUDITIONS: Auditions via ZOOM with RCS’s Music Director, Marina Alexander, can be scheduled by emailing We look forward to meeting you!


RCS regards the safety of its members as top priority, and will remain virtual until our New York State, CDC and DOH guidelines confirm in-person gatherings/rehearsals are permitted. 


In the meantime, we are grateful to be able to keep our wonderful choral community strong, “seeing” each other and singing “together” via ZOOM, as we look forward to the time we can safely make music together again.
