In addition, the Chor plans to offer two additional short experiments either on September 8th or earlier in the day on the 9th.  If you’re interested in signing up for one or both of the options below, please reach out to Hilarie at so we can schedule your private performance.  Please see the descriptions below for which you are interested in. Participants are encouraged to bring a yoga mat.

The two short experiences are:

In the Core:  These will be short (under ten minute) performances for 1-2 people at a time, who would like to experience lying down in the center of the group as we surround you and sing.

To the Core: These will be short (ten minute soundings where you will sit directly in front of an ensemble member, making eye contact while they sing to you.  Multiple mini-soundings will be happening together in the space simultaneously.


Constellation Chor, an immersion in voice, movement, and spirit is a vocal performance ensemble initiated and directed by Marisa Michelson. Vibrating voices and moving bodies create an experience that is deeply human, magical, healing and psychedelic.

Since 2016 we have been in residence at the historic Judson Memorial Church in New York City, and we are endlessly grateful to continue to have a home there.  We have also had shorter residences at Spectrum and Pioneer Works, both in Brooklyn, NY.

We are singers, composers, and dancers. We improvise vocal music at an advanced level. We are committed to embodied music-making, to practicing together over a long period of time, and to the liberation of the Singing Being (all of us/all of you).

Our  collaborators include Claire Chase, William Britelle, The Metropolis Ensemble, Sarah Hennies, Ashley Fure, the New York Philharmonic, the Kitchen, Heartbeat Opera, Harvard Art Lab, Maria Popova, Paola Prestini, Dave Malloy.

Awards/grants/residencies include: 2021 Toulmin Fellowship with National Sawdust and Center for Ballet Arts, The Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Dragon’s Egg, the inaugural MAD (Modern Accord Depot) Arts Residency.
