The Internationally acclaimed choirs
Chorus Angelicus and Gaudeamus
"The Angelic Choir"
Chorus Angelicus was founded in 1991 and now comprises four choral ensembles, involving more than seventy children who hail from towns throughout southwestern New England
"Let Us Rejoice"
Gaudeamus is an adult chamber choir of professional and semi-professional free lance singers formed in 1992, and often performs larger works in conjunction with Chorus Angelicus
This internationally acclaimed children’s choir has impressed audiences with the best of choral music, both sacred and secular, since its founding in 1991 by Grammy Award winning composer and keyboardist Paul Halley. Performances have included collaborations with the Hartford Symphony and the Paul Winter Consort in venues such as Boston’s Symphony Hall, the Music Shed in Norfolk, CT, the Warner Theater in Torrington, CT, and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. Chorus Angelicus has also toured nationally in Florida and the Pacific Northwest, and internationally in Canada, Spain, and Ireland.
Chorus Angelicus Temporary Measures
Since the Governor Ned Lamont's declared a state of emergency for the pandemic, we took the proactive measures and initiated Zoom rehearsals and meetings and followed necessary safety protocols. We’ve been busy. All our choirs performed in virtual events throughout the previous year. We look forward to being in person and holding live events as soon as we are able.
This is in the interest of the safety and health of our students, staff, and audiences. More details will be shared as this develops and we will adhere to public policy and direction of our local health officials. Please stay safe and healthy.
