The Connecticut Choral Society has been dedicated to the performance of choral music of the highest artistic quality since its inception in 1980. Serving the communities of Southbury, Woodbury, and Newtown, the neighboring towns of western Connecticut, and beyond, we seek to stimulate greater appreciation and enjoyment of choral music, both for the singer and our audiences.
While the pandemic delayed our plans for a 40th Anniversary Gala season, we remained concerted in our efforts to find other ways to help our community. We enter this season with renewed purpose to once again have our voices united in music, strength, compassion, and peace and to share the magic that happens when we come together with our community. The 22-23 season, OUR VOICES UNITED, offers a diverse program for singers and audiences alike.
From modest beginnings (less than 30 people attended the first rehearsal), we have grown in stature and accomplishment to become a renowned chorus of singers hailing from over 20 towns in the region. We have appeared in Carnegie Hall (with the New York Pops Orchestra), Lincoln Center, Yale University’s Woolsey Hall, and have toured England, Canada, Europe, Australia, and China—but most importantly, we remain dedicated to bringing beautiful and inspiring works to our local audiences in Connecticut. We are known for our high musical performance standards, outstanding contribution to the arts, and community outreach.
The Connecticut Choral Society is an organization of people united in their love of music and our joy in sharing that love with the greater communities to which we belong. Our gifts of music give both listener and performer alike strength in difficult times, help to remind us to treat others with compassion and respect, and remind us all that peace is possible—both for the moments when we are immersed in the beauty of music and as a way to help us find the common ground that yields lasting benefits.
Our Singers and Sustaining Sponsors look forward to welcoming new friends and supporters as we embark on our 40th Anniversary season together. Please join us in uniting our voices in strength, compassion, and peace. Music makes magical moments possible!
