Stories – Travelers Chorale

The Travelers 2017 Chorale and the Wadsworth Antheneum donated over 6,000 lbs of much needs non-perishable food items to Freshplace!

The 100 insurance professionals who comprise the Travelers Chorale love to sing and their passion for music has found joyful expression in the performance of more than 175 memorable holiday and spring concerts during the Chorale's 89-year history.

Admission to the Chorale concerts is always free and open to the public. In lieu of performance admission charges, the Chorale collects nonperishable food items from our audiences for Chrysalis Center's fresh food pantry, Freshplace. Over the years, thanks to the overwhelming generosity of attendees, the concerts have yielded tens of thousands of pounds of donations.

This year, the concert collect over 5,800 llbs of non-perishable items to benefit Freshpalce. The Wadsworth Antheneum also collected over 250 lbs of food items for Freshplace. Many thanks to all who made both these collections a huge success!
