Essential Voices USA (EVUSA) is widely regarded as one of New York’s preeminent choral ensembles. It comprises a highly talented roster of both seasoned professionals and auditioned volunteers. Within this group, Judith Clurman has created a dynamic choral model in which the size of the ensemble is dictated by the unique needs of each project. EVUSA performs regularly on the Carnegie Hall subscription series with The New York Pops and at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music. The ensemble was in residence with National Public Radio during the month of February 2011. That same year, the ensemble launched The Composer Speaks, a popular series of informal concerts in workshop format designed to encourage dialogue with composers and lyricists and moderated by Judith. In 2011 and 2012, EVUSA “rocked the rock” on NBC’s national broadcasts of the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting. A highlight of the 2012–2013 season was EVUSA’s participation in the Presidential Inaugural activities, including a sing-along of the “Sing Out, Mr. President” song cycle at the “Church of the Presidents” in Washington, D.C. The ensemble’s CD was also featured on NPR on Inauguration Day 2013. They performed on July 4th Macy’s 2014 Spectacular Fireworks broadcast on NBC television. EVUSA has recorded three CDs for Sono Luminus: Celebrating the American Spirit, Cherished Moments: Songs of the Jewish Spirit and Holiday Harmonies: Songs of Christmas.
