Summer performances at The Music Shed at Norfolk – the Battell Stoeckel Estate
Yale Summer School of Music
Norfolk, CT [ At the junction of Rt 44 and Rt 272 ]
The Litchfield County Choral Union (an ~ 75 member chorus) was established in 1899 by Ellen and Carl Stoeckel in memory of Mrs. Stoeckels father, Robbins Battell, who through out his life was an outstanding figure in the musical life of Northwestern Connecticut. After Mrs. Stoeckel’s death in 1939, Yale University established a school of art, literature and music on the estate as set forth in her will. In 1951 the Litchfield County Choral Union was reorganized and has since presented each year, in the Music Shed, a concert of a major choral work with orchestra.
