The GMChorale has become one of New England’s finest and most engaging classical music choirs since its founding in 1977 as The Greater Middletown Chorale. Today, the GMChorale is celebrated for its innovative symphonic choral concerts, and often performs with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, and other ensembles.

It is a core priniciple of the Chorale that the power of music is should be enjoyed for a lifetime.
