Schola Cantorum on Hudson (Schola), an independent non-profit organization, was founded in 1995 by Dr. Deborah Simpkin King, and performs its full concert season in both Montclair, NJ, and Manhattan.
Its members have been drawn together by a shared love of great choral music and by dedication to the highest standard of performance of that repertoire. Schola Cantorum (literally “school of singers”) has a three-part mission of:
- Musical performance,
- New music advocacy, and
- Choral music education/engagement.
Now entering its third decade, Schola boasts an internationally recognized new music advocacy initiative (ProjectEncore.org), multiple ongoing education and engagement programs, an impressive history of premiere performances, and an annual tradition of artistic collaboration with young artists.
