Our 2020-2021 season will be like no other!
We are committed to using this unprecedented time to become better, stronger, and bolder.
Our program year theme "With Every Breath" will inform the way we sing together, work together, and live together to build a better world.
This fall, we will join together for in-person rehearsals and we're taking safety seriously, so we'll be singing outdoors. All singers, directors, and staff will wear masks when working together. We will also perform health checks for all who enter our studio.
We're in the process of creating a robust virtual program in the event that we must move to online for a period of time.
We are programming repertoire that will challenge and inspire us to reflect on and respond to this current historical moment.
Sing with Us - With Every Breath!
44 Years Of Creating a Better World Through Song
The Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale was founded in 1977 as a civic children’s choir. From humble roots it has grown to be an organization with multiple choirs and an annual enrollment of nearly 200 children, in grades 3–12, throughout the Pikes Peak Region. The Children's Chorale’s musical excellence has earned it national and international recognition as one of the country’s outstanding children’s choirs, and it has been honored with three first place Gold Medals in international competitions. Singers in the Children's Chorale have traveled to Japan, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, and in 2011 toured in South Africa. In the United States, they have performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and at Carnegie Hall in New York City. In 2004, the Children’s Chorale pioneered the Pikes Peak International Music Festival – In Harmony– which has now been hosted in cities around the world. The Festival returned to Colorado Springs in 2010, with nearly 300 young musicians participating in the week-long festival. Locally, the Children’s Chorale has been the recipient of the El Pomar Award for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities, and the Mayor’s International Award for International Outreach.
Although the Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale has garnered recognition and an exceptional array of awards abroad, its heart and spirit are firmly rooted in Colorado and in the Colorado Springs community. It features an extensive statewide outreach program, including its High Altitude Youth Chorus, X-VOX: Generations Joined in Song Festival, Adopt-a-School Festivals, School Blitz days, Raise the Roof Boychoir Festival, an extensive tuition assistance program, workshops and residencies in schools, and concerts all over the state for groups including Pikes Peak Hospice, Cancer Survivors, CASA, and nursing homes.
