Though no in-person rehearsals are planned until there is a vaccine for COVID19, the Labor Chorus is hard at work on its repertoire and planning a virtual anniversary celebration. The NYC Labor Chorus has performed at strikes, rallies, and union meetings. The Chorus made its debut at a 1991 event produced by 1199’s Bread and Roses Cultural Program. Performance highlights include concerts at prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall in New York City, and events honoring Paul Robeson, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, and other progressive heroes.
