Enriching the cultural life of our Farmington Valley communities

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. In addition to seasonal performances, we also seek to encourage the cultural development of choral arts in our communities, and to provide amateur singers an opportunity to develop their talents.

Our History

It has now been over 50 years since the Chorale’s formation to celebrate the Town of Simsbury’s Tercentennial, and since then we have produced and performed an incredible variety of music and have worked with many talented musicians and singers.

Our Artists

Along with our accomplished artistic director Ellen Gilson Voth, we have seen both musicians and soloists featured every year – a practice that both enhances our singers’ talents as well as creates a beautiful musical experience for our supporters.
