The New York Holiday Singers combine industry-leading, custom vocal versions of contemporary and classic holiday favorites to bring high-end charm to your event.
Since we started our company in 2009, we've been proud to grow into NYC's most popular contemporary carolers. We have an unwavering committment to providing the absolute best in premium holiday vocal entertainment, whether it's traditional caroling or a holiday vocal jazz-inspired set.
All of our Singers rehearse together for months to perfect their blend and performance of our professional-level music, almost all of which was painstakingly arranged in-house specifically for our company. And, we bring the same level of care to everything we do, from our hand-knit custom red scarves to our internal, custom-programmed booking & event management system.
Book as few as 4 singers, all the way up to our full group as a powerful, beautiful choir, with no-nonsense per-singer pricing, an online, instant price quote tool, and the deepest, most varied music selection in the business. It's like fa-la-la-la-la 2.0.
We audition in September and rehearse for 11 weeks to bring our unique, world-class music to our clients. The Singers undergo rigorous training in our songs, concepts of "groove" and rhythm, and even handling distractions that can happen at public events. It's the highest level of quality in the industry.
Our world-class music is in brilliant four-part harmony and arranged in-house, and what you hear in our demos and media appearances is what you get at every event.
All of our Singers are fine-tuned and well-rehearsed — we have no A-team or B-team. So whether your event's Singers include our company officers and section leaders, or a new Singer, you'll get the best music in the biz.
Not only were the voices amazing, the song choices perfect for the environment, but the planning and post-concert tasks (payment) were super easy. Dealing with Greg was a pleasure. Very organized & efficient and exceptionally accommodating.

A perfect holiday event deserves the most professional, flexible, and musical entertainment around. You have a lot of options for live entertainment this holiday season. Here are the things that make the Singers the best carolers you can hire in NYC:
While our look can be casual or formal, our commitment to being the best holiday entertainment in the city is set in stone.
Our matching, hand-knit red scarves made by our Executive Director look both sharp and festive, and we can cater our attire to your event. Our musical arrangements, websites, photography & video production, and design is all hand-crafted in house. We bring the same production values to everything we do.
Our co-founder programmed the industry's first (and only) online booking & event management system to take the guesswork out of getting a quote, checking availability, and planning your event.
If you like what you see in our booking system, one click will let you reserve our Singers — so you can get back to planning your event. Then, once you're booked, you can use our Event Central system to manage your event, review our suggested setlist or create your own, and see who's going to singing at your event.
We live here. We work here. We shop and eat here. We love the holidays here. And, we think it shows.
We are one of the few professional caroling companies serving NYC that is actually based in New York City. Most of our Singers are likewise based in the five boroughs. When you're booking the New York Holiday Singers, you're hiring a New York City small, local business proudly based in Astoria, Queens since our founding in 2009.
What you hear is what you get. We sing the same music in our demos, media appearances, and events, and the Singers you see on TV are just as likely to be the ones at your event.
Our songs are our own versions of classic Christmas carols & holiday favorites set in rich, fun 4-part harmonies. Our musically-gratifying book is more like what you hear from professional acappella groups than simple "caroling." We don't have an "A-team" and "B-team" — all of our Singers rehearse together for months to master our challenging book. Clients are often entertained when a Singer they saw on television earlier in the day appears on their doorstep in the evening!
We're only a holiday season company. All of us love the most wonderful time of the year, and we love creating memories for our clients and their guests even more.
Our company focuses exclusively on the holidays and Christmas season, and we don't compromise on the quality of our holiday material. Our husband-and-wife cofounders have a December wedding anniversary, and Greg, our cofounder & Musical Director, loves his Christmas Eve birthday. We infuse that love of the holidays into what we do. That's why the New York Holiday Singers charm and delight our customers and their guests or customers, wherever we raise our voices in song: we create holiday memories. And, like Santa, we come 'round but once a year!
The team behind the New York Holiday Singers has been innovating holiday acappella since 2009.
Our groups have been featured annually since 2017 on Good Morning America, profiled on CBS Sunday Morning, opened for Pentatonix's holiday tours in 2017, 2018, and 2019, inaugurated the Bryant Park Santa Parade & Village, worked with countless brands and companies on activations & events, and appeared live & taped on NBC New York, Fox 5 WNYW's Friday Night Live, The Rachael Ray Show, Salon.com's Facebook Live, WFUV's Cityscape, WQXR's The Arts File, and hundreds more. Our company is fully-insured, and we know how to make every performance extraordinary.
During the pandemic, we perfected a variety of virtual offerings including pre-recorded videos with professional and fun animations, optional MC hosting the videos live, and live-to-stream performances where we can join your Zoom, Google Meet, or similar video call with our impeccable holiday cheer, featuring professional audio & video!
Check out samples of our charming, professionally-edited and animated virtual holiday offerings, singing the songs you've seen & heard on Good Morning America, NBC New York, and all over the city!
We offer virtual single song performances, 3-5 song "mini concerts," and 30-minute performances. All virtual offerings include optional recorded greeting and your branding on the intro/outro!
