About Us

The Village Carolers

Our Mission

Live performance of Christmas carols and holiday songs provides an unforgettable, emotionally rich experience. Our mission is to bring professional quality caroling performances to people all over the Mid-Atlantic region, especially to places where such experiences can be difficult to find. We want to touch the hearts and souls of as many people as possible, filling them all with the holiday spirit.  It is also our mission to pay a fair wage to our talented, experienced vocal artists for their time, energy, education, and experience.

We present a fun, experienced, and highly talented a cappella quartet (or octet or even a full choir!) for your town, business, or private Christmas party or holiday event. In our brief history, we have sung for hundreds of live or televised events throughout the mid-Atlantic region including Philadelphia, New York, Southern New Jersey, the New Jersey Shore, Central New Jersey, Northern New Jersey, northern Delaware, and southern Connecticut, and eastern Pennsylvania. Our singers are highly experienced and talented, with some of the top level training available throughout the world.

The Village Carolers

Our History

The Village Carolers™ was founded in 2013 by Westminster Choir alumni Michael and Suzanne Chadwick, who have each spent nearly 30 years singing professionally around the world in operas and oratorios.

Shortly after moving from Manhattan to Medford, New Jersey, a local candy shop owner asked Michael and Suzanne if they could use their singer networking resources to put together a caroling group to perform a few carols at her candy shop. Within days, after hearing the high quality level of the voices, multiple people requested us to sing for their event. At the end of that season the group officially became The Village Carolers and has been singing dozens of performances each year ever since.

We may substitute other talented singers depending on your event’s location when the need arises, or due to illness or scheduling conflicts. They are very experienced, having sung with opera and/or Broadway ensembles including such prestigious organizations as the Metropolitan Opera. Requests for particular singers may be made, but they are subject to distance and availability.

“Words are simply inadequate to describe the beautiful experience of having the Village Carolers serenade family and friends. We have hired them several times for our Thanksgiving celebration and they have stunned us each time with a breathtaking performance. Our guests were mesmerized as they dazzled us with perfect harmonies singing our favorite carols. We give them our highest recommendation!”
