These new two choirs, under the direction of Sarah Kaufold, are part of an emerging organization called the Consonare Choral Community dedicated to cultivating consonance and building community through choral music in the Quiet Corner of Connecticut.  Voices of Concinnity is a new 10-voice chamber ensemble of dedicated, seasoned choral artists from diverse backgrounds who strive to explore the art of singing together.  Our women’s choir, Choir Matrix, is new choral ensemble open to all self-identified women and endeavors to build community among and highlight the artistic contribution of women.  As part of the Consonare Choral Community, we also have a youth choir that rehearses at the same time as Choir Matrix, creating a needed symbiotic relationship to serve the community.
