While our primary audience resides in the Greater Hartford area, the Chorale has performed three times at Carnegie Hall in New York City. We have also performed in Providence, Rhode Island, Worcester, Massachusetts, and in Middletown, New Britain, Storrs, Fairfield, Waterbury and New Haven, Connecticut.

A highlight of the Chorale singing experience is our record of touring internationally. Our tours take singers, family, and friends on amazing musical journeys.

International Touring

  • In 2017, 63 participants traveled to Europe for a musical tour in Czech Republic, Austria, and Hungary. The “Jewels of Europe” singers performed to standing-room only audiences in the historic Church of the Holy Savior in Prague, the splendid Stephansdom in Vienna, and the 14th century Matthias Church, in Budapest.
  • In 2014, the Chorale completed a performance tour of Paris with concerts in the beautiful American Church in Paris, the Church of St. Etienne-du-Mont (musical home of Maurice Durufle), and, in a journey to the countryside, a concert in glorious Chartres Cathedral. More than one hundred travelers enjoyed this magical experience.
  • 2008 – It was a great honor to be specifically invited back to sing at the Cultural Olympiad in China! In collaboration with the New York Choral Society, we traveled to China in June 2008, to sing in the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Cultural Festival in Beijing, a concert in the Beijing Concert Hall, and a third concert in Qingdao, in the Qingdao People’s Hall. Chorus members were honored to present the Asian premier of the world renowned composer, Philip Glass’ contemporary masterpiece, Itaipu, in the Beijing Concert Hall.

The following evening the group appeared in the beloved Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, led by the distinguished Chinese conductor Mr. Hu Yong-Yan.
