Our Biography

A Story Steeped in Smooth Rock and Sheer Belief

Michelle Neuringer started Yacht Rock Choir, a no-audition choir in Brooklyn, NY, because she believes there should be a choir in the world that celebrates yacht rock music. It’s love-centered, positive and feels like our happy place: a sunny day with a water view, where time slows down. Singing yacht rock music in multi-part harmony leads to increased connectedness, inclusion, improved brain function, and groovy '70s vibes. This video tells our origin story.

"Participating in the Yacht Rock Choir was nothing short of sensational. From the first rehearsal, our talented and passionate Captain and Choir Director, Michelle, transformed our group into a harmonious symphony of yachty brilliance. Singing alongside fellow enthusiasts, I found not only a choir but a community. The camaraderie among us created a unique and joyful experience, all of which culminated in a performance for the ages. If you're a fan of smooth sounds and harmonies, and hanging out with really cool welcoming people, I wholeheartedly recommend joining the choir."
