A New Chapter for the WVC!
West Village Chorale Welcomes Malcolm Merriweather
as Artistic Director
The West Village Chorale is very pleased to announce the appointment of Malcolm J. Merriweather as Artistic Director and Conductor, beginning with the 2015-16 season.
Malcolm will be taking the baton from Michael Conley, who after fifteen wonderful years with the WVC will be leaving New York to become director of Music Ministries at the prestigious Calvary Presbyterian Church in San Francisco.
Malcolm joins the WVC having recently received his Doctorate in Conducting from the Manhattan School of Music. He has Master’s degrees from the Eastman School of Music in Choral Conducting and Voice Performance & Literature. He is Assistant Professor and Director of Choirs at Brooklyn College Conservatory, and the Choral Associate at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, where he works with conductor Kent Tritle.
Malcolm’s profound passion for choral music incorporates a variety of genres and traditions and will continue the Chorale’s unique and diverse programming style.
The WVC Board and Members are truly excited to work with, and to continue to grow under, Malcolm’s leadership. We are enthusiastic about this new chapter for the Chorale, and look forward to making music with and getting to know Malcolm, and sharing his musical vision with our friends and supporters!

Thank You for a Wonderful Summer of Singing!
Thanks to the hundreds of singers from near and far who came together as our weekly Summer Sing “choirs” this Summer! We really enjoyed seeing the many familiar–and new!–faces every week at Judson.
A special thanks to all of our Summer Sing conductors and the soloists they brought to enhance our evenings, and to our one-man orchestra, the fantastic David Ralph!
“Viva Vino” è Tornato–It’s Back!

Join us in support of the WVC as we toast the new season with help from some of NYC’s most talented and up-and-coming opera stars, while you sample wines chosen especially for the music we’ll be hearing (and singing).
