About Us



Our Story

The Northport Chorale was formed in 1982 as part of the Northport Continuing Education Department. Although the Chorale retains close ties with the Northport-East Northport School system, we are now a separate not-for-profit 501( c )(3) corporation with a Board of Directors elected by the membership.

  A mixed-voice chorus of approximately fifty members, the Chorale attracts singers of varied ages, backgrounds, and levels of experience. Under the direction of Joe Smaldino, the Chorale performs several times during the year, often with additional accompaniment, and guest soloists.
