Founded in 1982 under the patronage of the Trinity College Chapel, CitySingers of Hartford was started by a few friends who enjoyed singing together. Since then, the ensemble has established a musical presence in Central Connecticut of inspiring programs that celebrate our common music heritage.

These concerts often combine traditional and classical music for choral ensemble with other performing arts idioms. From the festive sounds of the holiday season to hauntingly beautiful Celtic melodies that touch the soul, to a celebration of the arts as a vehicle for world peace, this seasonís programs will present a rare and varied musical experience.

One of our continuing goals each season is to perform in different communities, on both sides of the Connecticut River, in order to visit a variety of performance spaces and audiences throughout the region. It is also our desire to make our performances available to all through many non-ticketed events.


Thereís lots in store. If you love music...especially choral music...including classic works and arrangements of traditional folk songs...with colorful and unusual instrumental accompaniments .... programmed in unique ways..... please do join us!
