The Chamber Singers of the Connecticut Choral Society is an auditioned “ambassador group” of the Connecticut Choral Society, offering a wide variety of great music—from ancient madrigals to spirituals and folk songs to pop hits from the great American Songbook.
They perform a cappella music under the direction of singer and composer Ron Dukenski. Ron has studied liturgical organ, and has held numerous positions as organist and choirmaster within Connecticut. Ron also enjoys composing music and is currently a composer-in-residence for the Connecticut Choral Society.
The production will take place in the library’s Main Reading Room. The performances are free of charge and light refreshments will be served following the performance.
