2019-2020 Season – Our 50th Year of Tradition.

POSTPONED: Spring Choral Concert

Cappella Cantorum has postponed its concert “Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle,” previously scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 3, 2020, in Deep River, CT. The concert has been rescheduled for Sunday, December 6, 2020.

The action was taken to comply with recommendations for reducing the spread of the COVID-19 virus, by cancelling events that would attract large audiences. In addition, the tri-town area of Chester, Deep River and Essex has closed the public schools, including for outside events such as the Cappella Cantorum concert.

With gratitude
The singers, board, staff, and volunteers of Cappella Cantorum

Cappella Cantorum is the lower Connecticut River Valley and Shoreline’s premiere non-auditioned community choral organization whose primary purpose is to learn, perform and enjoy great choral music while striving for excellence and the enrichment of its singers and audience.
