There are five choral groups at Trumbull High School in Trumbull, Connecticut: Freshman Choir, Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Women’s Ensemble, and Men’s Ensembles. Each of these groups performs regularly throughout the year and has consistently received high praise from experts in the field.
The Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, and the Women’s and Men’s Ensembles have toured extensively throughout Europe, Canada, and the United States. They have performed through England, France, Austria, Germany, Italy, and the Czech Republic giving concerts at such notable places as Notre Dame Cathedral, L’eglise de la Madeleine, Worcester Cathedral, the University Church of Oxford, Salzburg Cathedral, St. Peter’s Basilica, Basilica De San Francesco, Santa Maria del Duomo, and Santa Maria Maggiore. In 2016, the group traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana where they toured and performed at St. Joseph Cathedral, Loyola College and the World War II Museum. Most recently, the group traveled to San Francisco, California and gave performances at Mission Dolores Basilica, Grace Cathedral and Stanford University.
The Chamber Singers and Concert Choir have had the honor of performing at Carnegie Hall by invitation on nine separate occasions. They performed major works in the standard repertory as well as three world premieres. In addition, the Trumbull High School Choirs performed Messiah at Avery Fisher Hall (now David Geffen Hall) at Lincoln Center. This past April, the choirs were thrilled to return to David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center to perform the music of Will Todd.
The Chamber Singers have twice participated in the Chanticleer Youth Choral Festival where they performed for and with this multi-Grammy Award winning group and received critical acclaim for their performances. The Chamber Singers performed with the University of Delaware Chorale while they were on tour in Connecticut and they shared a concert with the Connecticut Chamber Choir accompanied by the Connecticut String Ensemble. In addition, they performed in the Hartt School of Music Choral Festival as well as the Western Connecticut State University Chamber Choir Festival. The Trumbull High School Chamber Singers often share the gift of music with school, community, and charitable organizations in the area, as well as performances for the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, the Greater Bridgeport Symphony, the Civic Orchestra of New Haven, and the American Choral Directors Association. This coming November, the Chamber Singers will be the featured choir for one of the Christmas Spectacular shows at Radio City Music Hall.
