THE AUDITIONS

Each applicant submitted an audition video singing a Christmas carol as part of the interview process. But that wasn’t the only important criteria; applicants also had to submit a second video sharing what Thanksgiving, Macy’s and the Parade meant to them personally.

This float is an opportunity for us as colleagues to give thanks for this holiday, this company, this country and the power of music.

MEET
THE CHOIR

This cross-generational chorus of beautiful voices is all about celebrating Macy’s in a unique way. Here’s your chance to get to know some of the singers who make the float so special.

THE EXPERIENCE

Thanks to Delta Air Lines, the Official Airline of the Macy’s Parade, choir members from across the country are flown to New York to start a series of rehearsals with Grammy and Emmy-nominated conductor Judith Clurman from the Manhattan School of Music. Plus, the choir gets to experience some iconic sights of the Big Apple.

The opportunity to go to New York, then to sing for Macy’s and be in the Parade. I’ve never been to any of the Parades before. [It was] the opportunity I couldn’t pass up—I had to at least throw my hat in the ring.

THE HISTORY

The idea of a Macy’s choir is in our heritage. In the 1950s, the Macy Singers, a choral group of Macy’s workers from New York City, even recorded an album. Now, once again in 2018, we’re reimagining that choral history.
