The Choirs of The Colorado Springs Children's Chorale
Ranging from training choirs all the way up to our premier performing and touring choirs and
comprised of singers in grades K-12, there are opportunities for all ages!
The Summit Ensemble is an auditioned choir of experienced singers in grades 9-12. Summit Ensemble singers perform a robust concert schedule, including national and international travel. This exceptional group has toured recently to San Francisco, Italy, Australia, Japan, New York City, and will compete in the World Choir Games in Belgium in July 2021. In 2019, they were selected to sing at the Colorado Music Educators Conference. The Summit Ensemble sings a broad range of challenging works, from classical to Broadway.
Our premier, auditioned treble choir for singers in grades 6-9 delivers professional level concerts close to home and around the world. This group is challenged at every rehearsal to continually progress vocally as an ensemble, as individual singers, and in their overall foundation of musical knowledge. The Pikes Peak Singers have received a variety of awards, including two first-place medals from world class caliber choir competitions. The Pikes Peak Singers stay very busy with concerts throughout the year, including regional tours, and national/international summer tour opportunities.

Our apprentice choir for singers in grades 4-8 is made up of a group of young performers who are ready to go the next mile in their musical journey here at the Children’s Chorale. This group will learn to sing multi-part music, learn to sight sing, and understand basic music theory. They will perform several times each semester, including the two big productions in December and late spring. Springs Singers are evaluated each semester, and may be considered for promotion to Pikes Peak Singers.

The Choral Academy is a training program for young singers in grades 3-7 who may not have any experience in choral singing but who love to sing. This choir enables singers to learn good choral techniques, musical discipline and the foundations of musicianship, and parents to see first-hand the benefits of Children’s Chorale. This training ground will help both singers and parents learn more about the Children's Chorale experience before committing to the rigors of the higher level choirs. Singers must be able to sing in tune and to focus their attention for rehearsals.
This choir is on hiatus for the 2020-2021 season, but we have a place for young men, grades 7-12! Contact us today to schedule an audition for Pikes Peak Singers or Summit Ensemble!
A fun exploration into the world of music for singers in grades K-2. More info coming soon!
