2021-2022 Season – Our 52nd Year of Tradition.

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.



The annual SummerSings series is back! Co-sponsored by Cappella Cantorum and Con Brio Choral Society, this program provides opportunities to enjoy singing choral works and working with professional conductors in a relaxed atmosphere without the pressure of preparing for performance. Just come and sing! All are welcome; you need not be a choir member to participate. Bring your own music if you have it, or vocal scores will be available on loan. The 2022 SummerSings are planned for June 27, July 11 and July 25 at First Church of Christ in Saybrook (Congregational), 366 Main Street, Old Saybrook, CT.


International Touring Choir!

Pat Hill and her industrious Tour Committee are working with ENCORE Tours out of Boston designing the direction of Cappella’s next adventure.

Keep posted by emailing Pat at phill2013mad@gmail.com if you would like to hear more about our plans as they develop.
