Message to Membership – October 6, 2022

Message from the President…

Dear Hartford Chorale,

It was wonderful seeing so many of you at the conclave. The music and camaraderie was a boost to the soul. Many thanks to SCAP led by Ed Below and Membership led by Steve Cottle for the excellent set up. Our hospitality is absolutely unparalleled thanks to our social committee led by the one and only Dawn Bauer.

Our next conclave looks back at our incredible 50th anniversary concert. Many thanks to the 50th committee led by Joanne Huelsman and to the commission committee led by Dr. Rick Wilson. The year could not have happened without the 2 years of hard work that preceded it.

I cannot wait for Monday. Until then, have a wonderful week and weekend.

Message from the Intern Coordinator…

Once again, the Chorale will be offering Intern positions for qualified high school and college students for the 2022/23 season.

Members of the Chorale are often the best resource we have for identifying possible interns so we ask that each member of the Chorale think about students within their own circle of friends and family for whom the Intern Program might be a good experience.

Click here for an info flyer and feel free to forward this information to any prospective students. Let me know if you have any questions…or leads!


Russ Hammond, Intern Coordinator.
