A goal of the Hartford Chorale is to extend singing opportunities to a broader constituency in order to attract more singers and to further serve the community.

D’Occhio Scholarship Fund
The D’Occhio Scholarship fund is in memory of Candido and Pacina D’Occhio, and was established to further students’ musical education in high school, college or post-graduate, or private education. Current Chorale interns in good standing are eligible to apply for the $500.00 award.
