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 Lauralton's annual Christmas and spring concerts as well during other School events.   

Lauralton musicians and singers also perform locally and have travelled for choral ensemble performances at:

Basilica di Sant' Andrea della Valle, Rome (read about Lauralton's April 2019 Holy Week trip to Italy
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 in 2017, 2018, and 2019.  For more information about Milford United Percussion, contact Mark Allen at
