The New York City Labor Chorus, with 75 members representing over 20 labor unions and District Councils, was founded in 1991.

Our Chorus promotes union solidarity by expressing through song the history and ongoing struggles of workers for economic and social justice. Our dynamic repertoire combines the power and culture of union music with the great gospel, jazz, classical and folk traditions.

Organized labor, united with its community allies, is an irrepressible social force. This is the message of the New York City Labor Chorus.
