Rehearsals are held Monday evenings (7:30 - 9:30 pm) at the South Britain Congregational Church Hall (693 S. Britain Road, Southbury).
The 2014/2015 season will consist of four concerts: Candlelight & Carols

at the Naugatuck Valley Community College Fine Arts Center in Waterbury.
The Connecticut Choral Society, established in 1980, consists of 75 auditioned singers representing over 20 towns. The ensemble was recently named by WTIC as one of the top five choral ensembles in the state. CCS is committed not only to presenting choral music of the highest artistic quality, but also to “making music that makes a difference” in our communities.
