Individually, and as a group, the Colorado Chorale is dedicated to strengthening the Denver-metro area community through music and individual actions.
From gospel to marimba groups, opera to musical theatre, Colorado Chorale’s programming and community are enriched through collaborative performances.

Past collaborations have included:

  • Alpine Chorale
  • Arapahoe Philharmonic
  • Columbine Chorale
  • Denver Brass
  • Evergreen Children’s Chorale
  • Littleton Symphony Orchestra
  • Musica Sacra Chamber Orchestra (now Stratus Chamber Orchestra)
  • St. Martin’s Chamber Choir
  • Spirit of Grace
  • 303 Choir
  • Young Voices of Colorado
A legacy of music for a lifetime is the vision of our Music for Life program, which encourages high school choir members to be lifelong singers.

We collaborate with student choirs to expose them to major choral pieces, often with professional orchestra, and to make them aware of musical opportunities after high school.

In 2016, the 303 Choir joined us for our Spring Concert. In February, 2013, we performed the Mozart Requiem with choirs from eight high schools in Boettcher Hall. We had 500 high school singers and 1028 people in the audience for this concert. In 2011, we performed Carmina Burana with the Aurora Symphony and several high school choirs.

The Chorale is seeking sponsors for our Music for Life program. Let us know if you’d like to learn more.

Our community outreach goes beyond our musical events. On any given weekend, you’ll find Chorale members in community, feeding the homeless, tutoring kids and adults, disaster response.
