Welcome to the Poughkeepsie Newyorkers Website!! The Newyorkers chorus is an
a cappella group which sings in the uniquely American "Barbershop-style

Who We Are – What We Do
We are the Poughkeepsie Chapter of
the international Barbershop Harmony Society. Our “Newyorkers Chorus” is part
of the Society’s Northeastern District, covering eastern Canada, all of New
England, and eastern New York State. Each of our society’s choruses across the
United States and Canada share the same goals: To provide continued music
excellence to their communities, especially those in local assisted living and
nursing facilities, veterans homes, habitat for humanity, at veteran
celebrations and also to students from elementary through college.

A "Special Welcome" to new member George Way, singing a very capable Baritone!
He is currently employed at Vassar College here in Poughkeepsie.
He first met us in 2009 and had an opportunity with us to sing the
National Anthem at the Renegades Stadium.
His life kept him busy till now.
Most recently, in a chorus with The Rhinebeck-Rheinbach Exchange Program,
he traveled to Germany for two weeks, resided with a host family
and performed at various historical locations.
We look forward to singing with George, contributing to our Baritone section!
