NOVA Chorale is a group of dedicated choral professionals (singers, teachers, conductors, and students) whose goal is to bring high-quality performances of great choral music to New Orleans, the North Shore, and other area audiences. Founded in 1989, NOVA has offered twenty-five seasons of free concerts as the area’s premiere choral ensemble, missing only the first concert in the fall of 2005. Now under the leadership of Dr. Meg Frazier, NOVA has grown into three performing ensembles — NOVA Chorale, NOVA VOCE, and NOVA Masterworks — providing a wider range of choral music for New Orleans audiences through an expanded, diverse concert season and collaborations with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Jefferson Chorale, and other area performing organizations.
