New York, NY – The New York Virtuoso Singers and Harold Rosenbaum have received the 2014 Chorus America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming. This is the fourth time NYVS and Rosenbaum have received this honor.
The Adventurous Programming awards recognize choruses that demonstrate a sustained commitment to adventurous programming through performances of choral music written in the last 25 years.
The awards will be presented at Chorus America’s 37th Annual Conference in Washington, DC, June 11-14, 2014. More about the awards at https://www.chorusamerica.org/news/2014-chorus-america-award-recipients-announced.

Founded in 1988 by conductor Harold Rosenbaum, The New York Virtuoso Singers has become the country's leading exponent of contemporary choral music. Although the chorus performs music of all periods, its emphasis is on commissioning, performing and recording the music of American composers. The choir appears on over 30 commercial CDs, including releases on Bridge, Albany, Soundbrush, and Kasp. Their latest release is Soundbrush Records’ 25 x 25, works written by 25 major American composers to celebrate NYVS’s 25th Anniversary season.
