March: Focus on Education - we hear from choir directors at the Darien Youth Choral Festival

"The progress of every group was inspiring.  As an educator, it was a pleasure to meet up with the hard working professionals in our area who joined in the effort to give every kid something to remember and hopefully a sense of something to aspire to." – Jeremy Fiftal, Fairfield Warde High School, Fairfield, CT


"It was an amazing experience for my students - Chanticleer was awesome to work with - it was great to hear all the groups - thank you for a wonderful day!  This type of experience enhances the student's learning on so many different levels - many thanks!" – Mary Raymond, Immaculate High School, Danbury, CT


"[The event] was one I believe our students will look back on for quite some time.  It was lovely meeting you all and sharing in the musical growth of all of our students...  Cheers!" – Juli Givoni, Joel Barlow High School, Redding, CT


"Awesome!  Thank you so much!" – Betsy Bergeron, Greens Farms Academy, Westport, CT


Thanks again – already looking forward to next year!

  1. As the parent of a would-be professional singer who has spent three years in your workshops in Darien CT, I cannot thank you enough.

    To be tutored and encouraged by musicians of your caliber has been extraordinary.

    Watching you at the Choral Festival, how you applauded every high school group louder and longer than we parents, I could really sense your love for music and your work.

    Bless you all!
