Choral & Instrumental Music

The Lauralton Hall Music Department offers students the opportunity to develop and enhance their musical, leadership, and collaborative skills through a wide variety of instrumental and choral ensembles:

  • Advanced Vocal Ensemble
  • Concert Choir
  • Freshman Choir
  • Jazz Ensemble
  • Symphonic Orchestra
  • Milford United Percussion (open to students from all Milford high schools)

Music students are engaged and challenged through entertaining orchestral and choral literature from traditional, contemporary, and world music genres. Our ensembles perform at Christmas and spring concerts as well as other events at and outside of Lauralton Hall.

Lauralton musicians and singers perform across the Milford community and even across the globe; previous choral ensemble performances include:

The Vatican for the New Year's Day Papal Mass
Disney World's Epcot for the Candlelight Processional
Avery Fisher Hall
400th Anniversary of the Founding of Jamestown

Additionally, our instrumental musicians perform with Milford United Percussion, which competes against other Connecticut ensembles in the Musical Arts Conference. Milford captured the top spot at the MAC Festival Class A Championships for the past two years.
