Founded in 1961, the Huntington Choral Society is a non-profit arts organization, whose mission is to pursue choral excellence and encourage artistic fellowship among its members and to provide high quality choral performances for the greater Long Island community. The Society's repertoire includes major choral works which span the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Post-Romantic and Modern eras. HCS has also presented original revues and musical theatre productions, and has performed in such venues as Carnegie Hall and Tilles Center. Comprised of approximately 100 members, the Huntington Choral Society presents 2 major concerts yearly, in December and April, which include professional instrumentalists and soloists each year. In addition, the Society sponsors an annual Messiah sing-along, holiday caroling at local nursing homes and Huntington Hospital, and participates in various town and community events such as the Huntington Arts Council’s Summer Festival in Heckscher Park.
