Danbury to warm up its voice

April 3, 2014 by  

In just a few weeks, Danbury locals will be able to enjoy an evening of spirituals, romantic favorites, madrigals, and folk songs as the Connecticut Choral Society Chamber Singers will be presenting a free recital entitled ‘Live, Laugh, Love’.

Singing a cappella since 1988, this group brings contemporary, sacred, and classical works to festivals, cultural arts programs, school assemblies, libraries, and special events around the area. The music for this performance will include such sentimental favorites as ‘If Ever I Would Leave You’, ‘Moon River’, and ‘Music, Music, Music’.

The Chamber Singers’ parent organization, The Connecticut Choral Society, is composed of professional and experienced singers and was created in 1980. Since then, its 75 members have performed with the New York Pops Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Yale University, and have toured Canada, Europe, China, and Australia.

Locally the chorus has an outreach program that performs benefit concerts in Danbury and surrounding areas. The society’s aim is to “bring music to the people”.

The Chambers Singers are an offshoot of this larger ensemble and was created for performances in smaller venues. Local print companies will undoubtedly be busily printing programs for the event.

The recital will be held 8:00 pm on Saturday, April 12, at the Marion Anderson Recital Hall, Danbury Music Centre 2nd floor, 256 Main Street, Danbury.
