About the Sage Singers

The Sage Singers, founded by Michael Musial in the fall of 1995, is a 60-voice chorus consisting of Russell Sage College students and New York Capital Region community members presenting performances of a wide and varied repertory of choral music.  Now in its 17th season, the Sage Singers has gained a reputation for performing challenging programs, stretching the boundaries for both performer and audience alike.

Based at the historic Russell Sage College Campus in Troy, NY, the choir offers area singers a unique opportunity to perform choral literature extending from intimate chamber pieces of the Renaissance to larger scale dramatic works for soloists, chorus and orchestra. The richly varied repertoire includes both sacred and secular music from the 15th to 21st centuries, all sung in the original language.  The repertoire of the Choir has included works by Brahms, Fauré, Vivaldi, Bernstein, Schubert, Handel, Orff, Mendelssohn, Thompson and Haydn.

While the choir has many college students, it is open to adult singers of any age.  Because it has a configuration of members from college-age and older, it has an interesting blend of young and more mature voices that is unique among choirs in the area.
