About ICC&CS

Founded in 1976 by Paul Gibbons (music director until his retirement in 1990), the Ithaca Community Chorus and Chamber Singers (ICC&CS) has grown to include well over 100 participants. Composed of students and residents from around the Tompkins County area, the Chorus membership is diverse, finding commonality in dedication to learning and performing history’s best choral offerings. The Chamber Singers is a select sub-group of the Chorus.

Our Concerts

ICC&CS performs two major concerts a year, at least one of which is with orchestral accompaniment. The Chorus’ repertoire  is complex and diverse–comprising works spanning the centuries as well as the globe. The Chorus has sung locally for audiences of about 400, and as far away as Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia.

Giving Back to the Community

The ICC&CS commitment to fostering appreciation for the choral art has extended to related projects such as sponsoring the 10-day Upstate New York tour of the Vassilyostrovsky Music School children’s choir ‘Uventa’ from St. Petersburg, Russia, and also a tour to Ithaca by the Malaysian Children’s Choir from Singapore.

In addition, each year the Chorus sponsors workshops, led by eminent musicians and technicians from the community, which are open to Chorus members and to the general public.

Our Sponsors

ICC&CS is supported in part by grants from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), the Community Arts Partnership (CAP) of Tompkins County, the Strebel Fund for Community Enrichment of the Community Foundation, and PPG Industries Foundation. Resources for Chorus concerts come from membership dues, fundraising events, ticket sales and other contributions. Members’ active participation in all aspects of Chorus operations is strongly encouraged.
