The Ridgefield Chorale is a contemporary music singing group whose members hail from Fairfield County Connecticut and Westchester County New York. Known for its vocal excellence and dedicated to the performance of contemporary choral music, from a cappella to Broadway, the standards, jazz and world music, the Chorale presents today’s finest choral composers and arrangers, accompanied by some of our area’s best musicians.

Ridgefield Chorale Director Daniela Sikora will be celebrating her 25th year with the Chorale this fall. Born in Germany and raised in Chicago, her education took her from the Robert Schumann Hochschule für Musik in Germany to Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music, and the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University where she did her graduate work in Voice Performance and Arts Management. She has won numerous awards, honors, and competitions as a professional musician, including the Metropolitan Opera Regional Award and a Fellowship in Chamber Music at the Aspen Music Festival in Aspen, Colorado. As gifted as Daniela Sikora is in the world of classical music and opera, she is just as at home with the standards, Broadway show tunes, pops and swing numbers that transport her audiences.

Daniela was recognized by the Ridgefield Arts Council with The Nancy Comstock Andrews Superlative Teaching/Mentoring Award in 2016.  In 2017, she received the Town of Ridgefield’s Spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Award, which recognized her tireless work and advocacy for the arts.  In 2021, Daniela received a Connecticut Arts Hero award for her inspiring work in the arts community.
