About Choral Accompaniment Tracks

Choral Accompaniment Tracks was founded in July 2023 and launched in late August. Our mission is to support Choral Music Educators by providing affordable, high-quality, musical, recorded piano accompaniment tracks performed by an accompanist with almost 30 years of choral music conducting and accompanying experience. All recordings have been recorded on a 7' 2" Boston grand piano with high-end condenser microphones.
