Our Mission

The Farmington Valley Chorale produces public choral concerts to enrich the cultural life of the communities of the Farmington Valley.

We also encourage the development of choral arts in our communities and provide amateur singers an opportunity to develop their talents under an accomplished director.

In the nearly 50 years since the Chorale’s formation to celebrate the Town of Simbury’s Tercentennial, we have produced two major choral concerts each year, most often with professional musicians and soloists. Recent performances include Brahms’ German Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Elijah and Handel’s oratorio, Esther. Check out our Repertoire section for more information about our performances!

We are a non-auditioned, community-based chorus of about one hundred singers - ordinary people who come together to accomplish the extraordinary through the beauty and power of choral music.

We accept new members in early September and early January. At these times, you are welcome to join us for a rehearsal!
