 From The Music Director 

Jon Noyes conducting FCCC


Happy Spring! As we approach the conclusion of our 18th season, we can look back on a spectacular year and ahead to a very exciting new season! In January we had a group of 55 singers perform on stage at Carnegie Hall.  

      Our Broadway Concert and Auction on February 2 at the Norwalk Concert Hall was outstanding. Bravo to all of our choristers, our soloists and ensemble members. We opened this concert with a Newtown Commemoration that included comments by Rabbi Shaul Praver from Newtown, a song dedication and the sales of Newtown bracelets.To read more, click here

We say a fond farewell to all of our graduating seniors. Best wishes to: Abiola Guinny, Rose Fusco, Marissa Carpanzano, Erin Albert, Anna Giannicchi, Carly Georgen, Adriana Ocrain, Rajane Brown,and Jeanette Zygmunt, 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 2004 as they finished third grade!! They have spent, as one of them recently pointed out, "half of their lives with the FCCC." They are, Erin Albert, Rose Fusco, Carly Georgen, Audriana Ocrain and Jeanette Zygmunt. We will miss them all very much!!
