Six years ago, Larry Bomback picked up the figurative baton and began his tenure as Director of Voices of Gotham. Since then, he has led us to two Mid-Atlantic District championships, the Barbershop Harmony Society Top 10 at International, and the production of the Society’s 75th Anniversary celebration and webcast.
As of last month, Larry has taken on the role of COO/CFO at the Cultural Data Project in Philadelphia. This is a tremendous opportunity for him, and the chorus wishes him the absolute best in this exciting new role. Larry has graciously agreed to stay on as Director of Voices of Gotham through the upcoming international chorus contest in Las Vegas, commuting back to New York City regularly and relying on the outstanding aid of Assistant Director Eric Engelhardt and the wonderful Music Team that Larry helped to build during his time here.
On a personal note, I want to say how absolutely proud I am to have been a part of the chorus from day one, watching Larry guide us from a ragtag group of twelve to an internationally-competitive chorus with 85 dues-paying members. Larry: your talents will be missed, but you are in the enviable position of watching Voices of Gotham’s continued growth, always knowing you were absolutely integral to our success.
As we prepare to make a splash at International in Las Vegas, we have formed a Director Search Committee tasked with selecting a musical leader to continue our upward trajectory. The committee, chaired by former President Braden Lynk, is accepting applicants now. If you are interested in directing Voices of Gotham, a top ten chorus with a constantly growing membership, contact the Director Search Committee. Read more about the full position description and application details.
We wish Larry and his family—wife, Coren, and daughter, Baylee—the absolute best in this exciting new chapter of their lives. Live in the Seventh!

President, Voices of Gotham
