Choir Matrix is a community vocal ensemble open to all soprano and alto singers with no audition, devoted to empowering and building community among womxn in northeastern Connecticut through choral music.
Our mission as an ensemble is to connect with the community and each other through the exploration of quality choral music, including the promotion of women composers, within an engaging, encouraging, and intergenerational environment focused on healthy vocal technique and artistic excellence. Directed by Sarah Kaufold.
We encourage those with children to join us as we have a tandem youth choral program (Consonare Youth Choirs) that rehearses at the same time.
In order to promote inclusion, we...
offer choral opportunities where all singers are welcome and no audition is necessary
strive to offer participation in these community choral programs at a low cost*
provide additional music learning resources and offer extra rehearsals for new
singers to ensure artistic excellence for all
divide our choral season into short sessions with the intention of allowing those
singers with busy schedules the opportunity to participate
Singers can participate in one or all of the sessions in any given choral season
(September through June). Once you become a member of the Choir Matrix community,
you will always be welcome to return if you miss a session.
Proof of vaccination will be required for in-person participation for Winter 2022 - the first two rehearsals will be held virtually. More info here.
Choir Matrix will return in Fall 2022. In the meantime, please consider joining our Community Choir, which features all voice types. For more information, please visit here.
