A review in the Journal Inquirer described a recent Hartford Chorale Chamber Singers performance: “…An extraordinary thing happened. A concert that became a meeting of hearts and minds…all was notable, overdue, and admirable…the singing was rousing.” The Hartford Chorale Chamber Singers are all members of the Hartford Chorale (Richard Coffey, Music Director), selected through audition, and committed to reaching beyond the setting of the traditional concert hall to entertain, educate and inspire a variety of new audiences. Through high quality choral performances, the Chamber Singers also enhance and extend the community outreach and education mission of the Hartford Chorale itself.
