Since its inception in 1990, the Allen-Stevenson Middle School Chorus has quickly established its place alongside the A-S Orchestra as a special testimony of Allen-Stevenson's dedication to the arts. The Chorus members, comprised of boys in Grades Four through Six, have performed a varied repertory from classical pieces such as Benjamin Britten's "This Little Babe" from A Ceremony of Carols to more eclectic works like the African Zulu song, "Siyahamba."
In addition to the annual Winter Concert and Closing Exercises, the Chorus has performed with professional choral organizations such as the Musica Viva Chorus and the New York Oratorical Society at Carnegie Hall. The Chorus has given performances around New York City and at venues out of town, including the Kennedy Center and the White House.
The Allen-Stevenson School Upper School Chorus
The Upper School Chorus is an outgrowth of the Middle School Chorus and provides continued opportunities for musical growth and experience. The Chorus members, comprised of boys in Grades Seven and Eight, have performed a varied repertoire and travel to a venue outside of New York City bi-annually to share their singing.
