This amateur group has maintained a high standard of excellence in the performance of the classical choral repertoire. Significant early performances include Bach’s St. Matthew Passion conducted by Jon Lafleur in 1992; Vivaldi’s Gloria; the commissioning and first performance of Epitaphos by American composer Gerald Near; the presentation of Handel’s Messiah with the Fanfare Consort with early instruments; and a concert of music by Connecticut Composers, including a 2002 CD recording on Capstone Records.

The group continues to evolve and refine its sound, performing works large and small, accompanied and a cappella, exploring the tradition of early music, baroque, classical, and modern music.

The Kent Singers typically perform concerts in December and in the spring. Members come from as far as New Milford and Southbury to the south, Woodbury to the east, Sharon to the north, and Pawling, N.Y., to the west; the majority are residents of Washington, New Milford, Kent and the immediately surrounding towns.
