Our Chorale

The HFSO Chorale is the official choral ensemble of the Hamilton Fairfield Symphony Orchestra. This mixed ensemble of some 90 voices rehearses weekly at Hamilton High School (Corner of Eaton and Washington) on Monday evenings. You will hear the Chorale on many of the HFSO concerts, including the Verdi Requiem during the 2011-2012 concert season. Under the direction of Mr. Paul Stanbery, the Chorale enjoys a reputation far beyond the Tri-State region.

2005 HFSO Chorale

Described as “fabulous, and highly professional in sound and work ethic” by Maestro Dennis Simons of the Shreveport Symphony, the Chorale is the pride of the vocal arts community in Butler County and regionally.

The Chorale performs 5-6 times per year and is a staple at such events as the Open Door Pantry Concert, Majesty of Christmas, American Masters, summer pops concerts, and the Ohio Mozart Festival.

Interested singers are encouraged to call and schedule an audition. You may also email us: hamiltonfairfieldsymphony@gmail.com

Join the HFSO in recognizing the twenty year legacy of our maestro, Paul John Stanbery.

“The Hamilton-Fairfield Symphony (and Chorale) is one of the finest regional orchestras in the Cincinnati area, not just for the quality of its performances, but for the creativity of its programming.

Under music director Paul John Stanbery…..The achievement of the performers was inspiring, the content of the program, inspired. Led by Stanbery, the combined forces of the orchestra and massed choirs made a splendid impression, one that begs for an encore……….In short, it was a concert to shed luster on the Greater Cincinnati community (and beyond), to foster appreciation of the finest in American music here and now.”
