During this time of social distancing, The Salvatones remain committed to the art of choral performance and are developing innovative ways to stay singing until live concerts again become possible. The virtual choir will continually release new music and is available for hire.
American Reflections (Virtual Concert)
Join the singers of The Salvatones led by artistic director Daniel Brondel in a virtual concert inspired by the five founding ideals of democracy, liberty, equality, opportunity, and rights. The musical program will feature music by William Billings, James Erb, Ysaye Barnwell, Eric Whitacre, and the virtual world premiere of "Welcome Table," a newly-commissioned piece by LA-based composer, Saunder Choi.
God Only Knows
“God Only Knows” is a song about moving forward after loss, which Wilson and Asher wrote to create the feeling of "being blind, but in being blind, you can see more.” While this has been a time of uncertainty and difficulty for many, there’s one thing you don’t need to doubt. As we end our 10th season, our mission to make music and share it with the world is not only needed more but stronger than ever. Thank you to our artists, our supporters, and our families, friends, and followers. God only knows what we’d be without you.
The Longest Time
It’s been the longest time since we have been together and nothing can ever replace the feeling of singing in the same space and for a live audience. As we look to the future, we will continue to collaborate as best we can, to spread joy along the way. Here is our stay-at-home edition of Billy Joel’s “The Longest Time”
In the Merry Spring
Enjoy our first virtual choir offering taken from our spring repertoire. We may be separated for now but united in spirit!
New York-based professional vocal ensemble, The Salvatones, consists of passionate, committed singers led by artistic director Daniel Brondel, Associate Director of Music and Organist at St. Patrick's Cathedral. Co-founded with President Salvatore Diana, The Salvatones' mission is to inspire and improve lives through high-quality music and creative community engagement. Since 2010, they have delivered consummate vocal artistry, delighting audiences in concerts, as well as private and public events, having performed for thousands as part of the St. Patrick's Cathedral Guest Choir Concert Series. The Salvatones have appeared throughout New York City and Westchester, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Ohio, and most recently Texas. The Salvatones have also collaborated with several internationally-renowned vocal ensembles including The Philippine Madrigal Singers, Essence of Joy Singers, and DeKoor Close Harmony. In 2014, they released their first commercial recording, Wonderful World, available to download and purchase, and in 2018, the ensemble released their first professional music video.
In 2016, they performed the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon as part of the Paul Creston Award ceremony hosted by acclaimed conductor Gerard Schwarz. In 2017, they participated in a national video project sponsored by Americans for the Arts. In 2018, they presented the New York premiere of Saunder Choi's The New Colossus based on the iconic Emma Lazarus poem. The Salvatones' annual concert series frequently features collaborations with area artists such as the New York Virtuosi string ensemble, and have included the programs: the Many Sound of Christmas, the Many Sounds of Spring, and American Reflections. As part of their mission to foster creative community engagement, The Salvatones have developed "Young Voices," a major educational initiative that places young singers in collaborative concerts to facilitate dynamic learning experiences. The Salvatones are active on social media and can be followed on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
The Salvatones are represented by Seven Eight Artists.
