-- Chorus Angelicus is comprised of four choral ensembles in residence at the Trinity Episcopal Church in Torrington, Connecticut. This concert, directed by Greg Wilfred, will perform pieces that include arrangements of folk music, Renaissance rounds, world music and more. The Junior Choir is composed of twenty children, ages 9-12, who hail from towns throughout southwestern New England. These singers perform regularly with the Training Choirs as well as with the Senior Choir of Chorus Angelicus and the adult choir, Gaudeamus. The Artistic Director is the esteemed Argentinian pianist and singer, Gabriel Löfvall. Choir members will also talk about their experiences of performing in the choir as well as answer questions from audience members.
This internationally acclaimed children’s choir has impressed audiences with the best of sacred and secular choral music since its founding in 1991 by Paul Halley. Performances have included collaborations with the Hartford Symphony and the Paul Winter Consort in venues such as the Boston Symphony Hall, the Music Shed in Norfolk, The Warner Theater in Torrington, and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. Chorus Angelicus has toured both nationally and internationally from Florida, to Vancouver, B.C., and Ireland.
