About BCS

The Bronx Concert Singers (BCS) is a non-sectarian, mixed-voice, volunteer chorus located in the Parkchester section of the Bronx, New York. Since 1981 the chorus has attracted adult music lovers of all ages and backgrounds who are passionate about choral singing.

With music director Robert René Galván, BCS performs traditional European choral masterworks, and an array of music from our world's diverse cultures.

BCS presents two major concerts per year performed with either orchestra or chamber ensemble. Recently performed works include Faure's Requiem, Mozart's Requiem and Haydn's Missa Brevis St. Joannis De Deo.

BCS welcomes both experienced and novice singers. Sight-singing and/or the ability to read music is preferred, but not mandatory. Our Music Director may ask new singers to perform a brief audition consisting of pitch recognition and vocalizing.
