Mission Statement

To offer engaging and versatile musical experiences that connect singers and audiences and to be a catalyst for collaborative performances that share our artistic excellence and passionate communication of the choral art.

Organization History

The Chorale is a community chorus, founded in 1980 by graduates of the Cherry Creek school system and their parents. We became a 501(c)(3) organization in 1985.

In our 37 years, we have stayed true to our founding commitment to artistic excellence. At the same time, we have sought new, and widely varied, music to sing, new venues, and new performance groups to share our programs.

We have grown from an initial 18 voices to 130-plus members drawn from the entire Denver area, and have still maintained our founding ties with one charter member and over a dozen 25-plus years' "veterans." Our Artistic Director/Conductor -- Brian Leatherman -- is now in his 22nd year.

In our regular concerts, and in various other formats, we have sung throughout Colorado, elsewhere in the U.S., and in Europe. In the past five years, we have collaborated with nearly 30 musical groups and individuals. We have given back to the community through free concerts, benefits for other non-profit organizations, and hundreds of complimentary tickets to those in need.

Testimonials

1. Donna Watkins, an audience member at our May 2017 concert: The very first powerful note foretold a magnificent concert in which a panoply of emotions - joy, sorrow, exuberance, despair - would be on display! I loved "Miserere," in which the men sounded as one voice. There was such majesty in "Aida!" I wouldn't have been surprised to see some elephants trumpet their way down the aisles.

2. Tony Ramsey, viewer of live-stream of our May 2016 performance of Larsson's "A God Disguised" and Mozart's "Requiem": "Fantastic! This chorale is not afraid to be awesome. Thanks for sharing."

3. Devin Patrick Hughes, Artistic Director of the Arapahoe Philharmonic, with whom we collaborated on Beethoven's 9th Symphony in October 2015: "Congrats on an amazing performance. The choir was right on and full of tremendous energy. Because of your superb preparation they knew the Beethoven inside and out. This was a truly inspiring experience, and they just get better and better."

4. Amy Pieri, an audience member at our May 2015 concert, "Song and Dance": "To all you fabulous singers: (It was) vibrant, diverse, poignant, exuberant, tender, infectious, lively, rhythmic, sensitive … Well worth a trip out in that weather to see your bright eyes and smiling faces singing with such joy."

5. Lynn Baker, Director of Denver University's Lamont School of Music Jazz Program, with whose Lamont Jazz Orchestra the Chorale collaborated in our March 2015 concert, "American Songbook": "It was a complete pleasure to work with you on these exciting and swingin' concerts!  The Chorale really got into it, especially Saturday night!  They sounded so enthusiastic and full of joy - the right vibe for that music!  Please pass along my compliments to all your fine singers."
