The Astoria Choir works to provide world-class choral music experiences to singers and audiences in the community of Astoria, New York.
The choir's story begins in 2010. Founded by our artistic director, Adam Eggleston, we were just 35 singers known as The Astoria Symphonic Choir, and we worked under the auspices of the Astoria Symphony Orchestra.
