From the community, for the community

Founded as the New Canaan Community Glee Club and supported by the local PTA, The Stamford Chorale is the greater Stamford area’s community chorus. The 80-member strong group presented its first concert at Saxe Middle School on Feb. 3, 1949 and is celebrating its 75th birthday this year.

We became the New Canaan Community Chorus in the late 1950s and were reorganized as The MasterSingers of Greater Stamford in the 1970’s. As more and more concerts were presented in Stamford, the chorus was reincorporated as The Stamford Chorale, a 501(c) organization, in 2003.

Our community choir offers both amateurs and professionals the opportunity to sing together and share their love of music. We perform Classical repertoire to Contemporary choral music at two formal concerts a year and rehearse once a week. In recent years we also have performed at  the Ferguson Library, Town Center Mall during the holiday season, Edgehill, Smith House and Atria. 

Our motto “From the Community, For the Community” represents our goal of presenting quality concerts for all.
