The Choirs

The Interchurch Center sponsors two choral organizations, each of which performs several times during the September through May season.

The Gospel Choir, which offers a range of styles spanning both traditional and contemporary Gospel music, rehearses in the chapel each Tuesday for one hour beginning at 12:00 p.m. Although sight-reading skills are not necessary, some choral experience is desirable, given that the rehearsals are relatively short.

The Interchurch Center Chorus performs a variety of works from the choral repertoire, often accompanied by instrumental ensembles. Though no auditions are required, it is desirable that participants have some choral experience and/or sight-reading ability. Rehearsals are held every Wednesday from 1:00PM to 2:00PM in the chapel.

Music on Wednesdays

From mid-September through May, The Interchurch Center sponsors a series of programs by professional artists from the New York metropolitan area and beyond. Programs range from string quartets to woodwind ensembles, traditional African folk music to Celtic songs and dances, medieval to jazz, vocal soloists to choirs, and emerging artists to established professionals. Director of Chapel Music Christopher Johnson arranges a broad spectrum of quality programming that is designed to appeal to the widest possible audience. The programs, which last one half hour, take place during the lunch hour beginning at 12:05PM. While the primary purpose of the series is to provide a cultural respite for the Tenants of The Interchurch Center in the midst of the workweek, all are welcome. Concerts have resumed virtually via YouTube. Click here to download the 2023 -2024 schedule.

Exhibitor & Presenter Information

The Galleries of The Interchurch Center

The Interchurch Center (TIC) is a nineteen story, non-profit office building, located on the Upper Westside of Manhattan. Columbia University, Barnard College, Teachers College, Union Theological Seminary, and Riverside Church are a few of its neighbors. Tenant organizations range from major religious denomination headquarters to small foundations and socially committed service organizations.

There are two exhibit spaces located on the main floor of the building with easy access to the public and completely accessible to the handicapped. The Treasure Room Gallery is a 2,000 square foot exhibit space with professional display and lighting systems.

The Corridor Gallery has twenty large self-lighted display vitrines. Each vitrine measures approximately 46” high by 36” wide. Eight of these are eighteen inches deep to accommodate three-dimensional work. A diverse selection of fine arts and crafts is exhibited on an eight month, four week rotating basis during the year.

If you are interested in having an exhibition of your work please send an e-mail to info@interchurch-center.org.  Include a link to your website, and other social media sites. Submissions are evaluated based on quality, innovation, and appropriateness and adequacy of facilities and equipment at The Interchurch Center.
