Mission: Rocky Mountain Arts Association exists to build community through music.
Purpose: The Denver Gay Men's Chorus and the Denver Women's Chorus under the umbrella of the Rocky Mountain Arts Association are dedicated to musical excellence and social justice. We value entertaining, educating, inspiring, and empowering our audiences to create and nurture safe, supportive, and inclusive communities for our singers and for all citizens. We provide a safe environment and community for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and/or questioning, intersex, and asexual and/or allies to express their artistry. Our performances contribute to the diversity and vibrancy of the arts community in Colorado, and educational, cultural, and social enrichment for our audiences.
With a mission of "building community through music," the choruses of Rocky Mountain Arts Association (RMAA) have been entertaining audiences throughout the greater Denver metropolitan area and Colorado Front Range communities for 39 years. RMAA serves as the umbrella organization for our two choruses and represents the oldest and largest LGBTQ performing arts organization in Colorado.
Now recognized as one of our state's premier performing arts organizations, RMAA produces five subscription concert series each year and participates in dozens of free community outreach events benefiting nonprofit organizations, advocacy groups and business organizations; along with educational programming in Denver area high schools to engage and empower LGBTQ, questioning, and gender nonconforming youth and their allies.
RMAA member choruses have performed in 12 states, the District of Columbia, and Canada; appeared in all of Colorado's top-tier performance venues; commissioned more than 20 new choral works; produced a number of commercial recordings; and performed with several well-known Broadway and television artists. In more than three decades of performances, the Denver Gay Men's Chorus and the Denver Women's Chorus have entertained, educated, and inspired almost one-half million audience members.
The Denver Women's Chorus always moves me emotionally. The combination of a theme and the arrangements is outstanding. The chorus is so enthusiastic, too.
DGMC presents a delightful blend of a professional performance of music and whimsical skits celebrating the holidays while reaffirming support for love between us all.
The energy of the performers is electrifying!
Really enjoy the varied music and non-traditional elements of the chorus walking in, step dancing, and shaking things up to keep it interesting!
I love the dancing and how engaging the performers are with the audience.
The sound shimmered! Tears!!! Goosebumps!!! The message was inspiring! The slide show was top notch. Thank you! Keep it up!
