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.

Hallelujah Winter Concert – Sunday, December 5, 2021


Cappella Cantorum will be performing Handel’s Messiah Part One (the Christmas section) and the Hallelujah Chorus on December 5, 2021 at First Church of Christ Congregational 366 Main St., Old Saybrook, CT 06475.  In light of all we’ve been through over the past year and a half, the concert is aptly titled, “Hallelujah!”.  Simon Holt of the Salt Marsh Opera and First Congregational Church of Old Lyme will direct our joyous return to singing.

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

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