Chorister Profiles-FCCC Seniors!
We say a fond farewell to all of our graduating seniors. Best wishes to Dasha Bazile, Alexandra Blitzer, Abby Bruce, Blaise Carter, Isabella Cassone, Liana Dunnell, Emily Erikson, Caitlin Golynker, Sara Grant, Reyes Huerta and Jackie Konstanty. They have given so much of their talents and time to our choir!

In addition, we congratulate five of these seniors who will receive our Choral Scholar Award. This is given to choristers who have been members of the FCCC for the maximum term of nine years. We are so happy that these seniors 'found us' way back in 2009 when they were finishing third grade!! They are

In Your Own Words: 
I can't thank my parents and Mrs. Carter, my voice teacher, enough for the passion that I have for singing in this choir. Just a few years ago I never thought of singing. Especially at a children's choir. I want to thank my parents for helping me to realize the talent that I had for singing and Mrs. Carter for being my vocal instructor and for being basically another parent for me. She taught me to expand the many genres that I now sing. I really wish I would have known of Mrs. Carter and FCCC much sooner. I'm fairly new to choral music, but there is one quote that I would like to give to all former, current and future FCCC singers: "La disciplina, tarde o temprano vencerá a la inteligencia." ("Discipline will sooner or later overcome intelligence.") That is, it is important to have talent, but it is more important to be disciplined to achieve success. Thanks to Mr. Noyes and all the FCCC staff and singers for having me being part of this beautiful and extraordinary choir!      
Auditions for the 2018 - 2019 season will take place in May and June. Present choristers/parents may sign-up for an audition appointment at rehearsals. Prospective new members may register for an appointment by calling 203-414-4292. The audition is just seven minutes in length and consists of singing an easy song such as Frère Jacques or America and echoing a few melodic patterns. Click here for details! 

FCCC Concerts & Events
As we head into the final months of the 2017 - 2018 season we are preparing for some truly incredible performances! Read on to find the details of these events.

On Wednesday, April 25 the FCCC Chamber Singers will perform at Fairfield's Holocaust Commemoration Ceremony. This is one of the most profound events we undertake each year. Not only do we perform an important community service but the opportunity to be a witness to history as told by Holocaust survivors is an extraordinary educational and emotional experience. The program takes place at 7:30 P.M. at First Church Congregational (148 Beach Road) and is open to the public.  read more...
