Description

It is the mission of the Travelers Choral Club, Inc. to enhance culture by providing musical concerts and to conduct charitable activities including, without limitation, the collection of non-perishable donations for local foodbanks. The members are current or former employees of the Travelers Company.

Travelers Chorale is the oldest company-affiliated, eight-part choral group in America. The ensemble has performed on the prestigious Bushnell Auditorium stage annually since its historic opening in 1930.

During 90+ years of singing and entertaining, the Travelers Chorale has performed at a World's Fair; entertained Governor Jodi Rell and the Connecticut public at the Governor's Executive Residence; sang at the Opening Ceremonies of PGA Championship golf tournaments; led thousands of downtown Hartford carolers in seasonal song at Hartford's Festival of Light
broadcast Christmas carols on live commercial radio; and collected thousands of pounds of nonperishable food and countless toys at annual concerts in lieu of admission to benefit those less fortunate in the Greater Hartford community.
