Description

We encourage youth to be lifelong singers by inviting students from elementary through high school to perform with us at select concerts. For some, this is the first time to sing with an orchestra and a large choral group. Students get the experience of singing with seasoned choristers who have a passion for choral music.

In 2019, we will partner with high school choirs from Adams County in a High School Choral Festival.

We make free tickets available through ArtReach, and youth under the age of 21 attend our concerts for free.

Our Music for Life program is building Denver's cultural community by inspiring a new generation of singers.
