Do you love to sing? Do you want to make a difference through music? You can be part of Stamford’s multifaith community choir; an amazing group of people from diverse backgrounds and spiritual paths who have come together in the name of love and unity. The New World Chorus, whose vision is “One World, One Voice, United in Love” performs throughout the year at multiple community events and houses of worship. Among our many wonderful multifaith events are “Thanksgiving – A Time to be Grateful”, “World AIDS Day”, “Season of Miracles”, “The Shabbat Experience” and “Street Angels”. We also perform at significant events in our community and support meaningful projects such as the “Living Voice Chorus” which gives people living with a form of dementia and their care partners an opportunity to connect through the power of music.
Our music is a blend of original contemporary and traditional, with songs in Hebrew, Gospel, Arabic and more. If you are looking for a way to get more involved, to express your heart in a meaningful, creative way, get to know our neighbors on a deeper level and make new friends, it’s the perfect time to join the New World Chorus!
The Fall season begins on September 15th, 2016 and goes through to Dec. 15th. Rehearsals take place on most Thursday nights from 7:15pm – 9:15pm. Location in Stamford to be announced shortly.

The 6th Annual Community multifaith Thanksgiving Celebration “A Time to be Grateful” will take place at the Union Baptist Church in Stamford. The New World Chorus will join once again with the Union Baptist Church Choirs including the UBC Youth Choir – in this wonderful and meaningful celebration.
This annual concert and service is produced by Beth Styles and sponsored by the Interfaith Council of Southwestern, CT. “A Time to be Grateful” has become one of the most anticipated community experiences of the holiday season in Stamford. People of all backgrounds, faiths – adults and children are invited to come together for this celebratory service – powerfully designed to open our hearts with music and prayer as ONE community in this special season of gratitude.
The New World Chorus and Carriage House Studios join forces again to create a memorable holiday experience around Stamford. The chorus and local singers come together to spread the spirit of the holidays! As a Multifaith Choir, the New World Chorus will sing Christmas and Chanukah songs as they roam around the town of Stamford. It is always a wonderful feeling to see the faces of children light up as we show up and sing by surprise!! Performances will include the Stamford Mall, the Ferguson Library, the Palace Theater as the Nutcracker lets out and most importantly, the choir will visit several assisted living locations as well as shelters.
“Street Angels” began in 1994 led by Dianne Gunnip (of Stamford’s well known original band “Sister Sun”). We are honored to continue the tradition by bringing love and joy especially to those who need it most.
