About Angelica
Angelica is a Hastings-based women’s chamber choir founded in 1996. The group has developed a rich repertory of music ranging from early anonymous music to contemporary compositions. Angelica also performs a unique variety of music, including chant, Sephardic, Balkan, American folk, and jazz, and sometimes incorporates instrumental accompaniment. The group performs concerts throughout the year in both Manhattan and Westchester.  Eugene Sirotkine, former Assistant Conductor of the Metropolitan Opera, and director of the NY Metamorphoses Orchestra, describes Angelica as having “a gorgeous sound, rich sonorities, and transparent harmonies.” Others have described their music as “transcendent” and “angelic.”
