Colorado Springs Chorale
Founded in 1956, the Colorado Springs Chorale is the oldest continuously performing community organization for vocal artists in the state of Colorado. The Chorale and its outreach arm, the Chamber Singers of the Colorado Springs Chorale, contribute to the cultural richness of the Pikes Peak Region while providing an artistically rewarding choral experience for talented singers.
The Chorale is a 120-voice auditioned adult ensemble that functions as the premier symphonic chorus for the Pikes Peak region. Each season, the Chorale performs at its independently-produced concerts, and it also collaborates with ensembles in the region, including the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, Chamber Orchestra of the Springs, Air Force Band of the Rockies, Opera Theatre of the Rockies, and others.
The heart and soul of the Chorale is its singing membership. The group is comprised of a cadre of dedicated volunteers—from young adults to retirees and from all walks of life—who participate in the Chorale’s work for the sheer love of their art. They are each well-trained in choral singing and musicianship, and give many hours of rehearsal to the perfecting of each concert. The Chorale sings a wide range of classical, contemporary and international music, including the masterworks of the choral repertoire. With its high caliber of vocal artistry and musicianship, it rivals professional choruses around the world.
