Thanks for visiting the Travelers Chorale website!
Thanks for making our 89th Annual Travelers Chorale Winter Concert such a success!
Please make plans now to join us for our 90th Annual Spring Concert:
Admission and parking are free, but we do encourage you to bring non-perishable food items as donations. At spring and holiday concerts each year, the Travelers Chorale teams with our generous Bushnell audience to collect approximately 6,000 thousand of pounds of non-perishable food in support local food banks. Forty percent of these donations benefit CT children.
- Thursday, May 22, 2014, 7:30 p.m.
- Mortensen Hall at the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, Hartford, CT
You can find information about the Bushnell, including parking information and directions, on their website: http://bushnell.org/index.cgi/64546.
The Travelers Chorale was founded in 1924 and is the oldest company-affiliated, eight-part choral group in America.
We've performed on the prestigious Bushnell Auditorium stage annually since its historic opening in 1930.
The 100 insurance professionals who comprise the Travelers Chorale love to sing and our passion for music has found joyful expression in the performance of more than 175 memorable holiday and spring concerts during our 88-year history.
Admission to our concerts is always free and open to the public and there
is never a charge for parking. In lieu of performance admission charges, the
Chorale traditionally collects nonperishable food items from our audiences for
donation to local food banks. Over the years, your overwhelming generosity
has yielded tens of thousands of pounds of donations. Our foodbank partners
report that 40% of the beneficiaries have been Connecticut children.
During our 89 years of singing and entertaining, the Travelers Chorale has:
- performed at a World's Fair
- entertained Governor Jodi Rell and the Connecticut public at the Governor's Executive Residence
- sang at the Opening Ceremonies of PGA Championship golf tournaments
- led thousands of downtown Hartford carolers in seasonal song at Hartford's Festival of Light
- broadcast Christmas carols on live commercial radio
- collected thousands of pounds of nonperishable food and countless toys at annual concerts in lieu
of admission to benefit those less fortunate in the Greater Hartford community
- received two official State of Connecticut Proclamations.
