Alec Galambos
Alec Galambos is an NYC-based composer and conductor for multimedia and concert projects. After growing up on piano and choral music, he studied composition at Emory University and then moved to New York to pursue a M.M. degree in Composition and Film Scoring at NYU. He has since recorded scores for independent features, documentaries, nationwide advertising campaigns, and video games, and has created and conducted arrangements and original works for KHORIKOS and ensembles across the country. Alec has served as an assistant conductor of KHORIKOS since 2011 and is honored to lead the group in performances throughout the city. 

Khorikos is one of New York City’s most distinguished a cappella ensembles, performing a wide range of music from medieval polyphony to contemporary sound sculpture. The ensemble aims to reinvent the age-old art form of choral music by engaging in unique collaborations with artists of other genres, including film and dance, and by performing in traditional and nontraditional venues. KHORIKOS performances have been described as other-worldly, powerful, and cutting-edge. Khorikos is a project of Dorian Artists Corporation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
