“Getting good music into the ears of young people is just as important as getting books in their hands. The enthusiasm, professionalism and energy were exemplary and unsurpassed by any other performers we have seen this year. The Colorado Children’s Chorale has inspired my good students to become great performers.”
— Ami Hall, Performing Arts Teacher, Englewood, Colorado
“Your staff and talented singers made quite an impact on our students. The workshop was extremely exciting and was well-planned, focused and fun. The highlight was the performance by the Children’s Chorale. As I expected, the children were well-rehearsed, energetic, delightful and sang beautifully. It was great for my students to see the results of hard work with singers using well-taught skills. The Limon students will remember this experience for many years to come.”
— Cindy McCallum, Music Teacher, Limon, Colorado
“I am still peeling my kids off the ceiling. They had SO MUCH FUN that they still haven’t come down from their ‘high’ yet. I told the Chorale yesterday that they accomplished in two days more than I can do in a year!”
— Kim Pflug, Music Teacher, Fort Morgan, Colorado
