Capital Singers of Trenton (CST) started in the spring of 2006 as a select group of mixed voices under the leadership of Richard M. Loatman. A non-sectarian, non-partisan, semi-professional chorus, CST maintains its commitment to promoting the art of choral singing, enriching the cultural life of New Jersey, and serving as a goodwill ambassador for the city of Trenton.
At its inception the ensemble, augmented by the 50-plus members of Trenton Community Singers, provided concerts, special performances, and community outreach throughout the New Jersey Capital Region and Bucks County, PA. Now in their 15th anniversary year, the groups continue as CST and CST Chorale. Under the direction of Artistic Director and Conductor Vinroy D. Brown, Jr. they perform a repertoire of sacred and secular choral works that reflect various musical styles and historical periods.
CST has been privileged to appear with a variety of organizations who share their passion for choral music. Highlights include performances of Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living and the New Jersey premiere performance of Karl Jenkins’ Stabat Mater with Sinfonietta Nova of West Windsor, NJ; a performance of Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy with the Warminster Symphony Orchestra in Warminster, PA; the shared celebration of Israel’s 60th anniversary and the 85th anniversary of the founding of Adath Israel Congregation in Lawrenceville, NJ; and the dedication ceremony of the New Jersey World War II Memorial in Trenton. The chorus has given performances locally at Grounds for Sculpture, Trenton Artworks (in conjunction with the Mill Hill House Tour), the William Trent House, The City Museum at Ellarslie Mansion, and St. Paul Church in Princeton, as well as concerts in Plainfield, West Windsor, and Hamilton, NJ; and Bristol, PA. CST has given benefit concerts in Bay Head, Beach Haven, Ewing, and Bridgeton, NJ. The groups perform twice annually at Sacred Heart Church, Trenton.
