Since 1994 the Colorado Children's Chorale has been providing a high quality music experience, without audition or tuition to children in their communities across the metro area. Chorale staff direct these programs weekly, keeping music education in the lives of as many children as possible.
“Partnering with the Chorale has provided my students multiple musical opportunities that they would not be exposed to otherwise. The Chorale is an organization that has filled the lives of those in the Montbello community with a greater appreciation and joy of music. My students and I would not be who we are as musicians without the support of the Chorale. They are true partners in music education.”
- Amy Friedhaber, music specialist, Farrell B. Howell K-8 and NE Denver JAMS director
