The Trumbull Choirs have previously appeared at Carnegie Hall on nine occasions as well as on tour domestically and internationally. In these settings students have a unique opportunity to perform in a world-renowned venue with professional musicians.
Choir Director Anne Tornillo said, “I am so proud of our wonderfully talented Trumbull High School vocalists whose reputation as fine and well-prepared singers resulted in this invitation. We have worked diligently on this challenging music and so look forward to our upcoming Avery Fisher Hall experience.”
Tornillo instructs nearly 300 students in five ensembles: the Freshman Chorus, the Concert Choir, the Chamber Singers, the Women’s Ensemble and the Men’s Ensemble. The Choirs’ annual Winter and Spring concerts are open to the public. The Winter Concert is scheduled for Wednesday, December 19 at 7:30 pm.
