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 five choirs and a annual enrollment of nearly 200 children, in grades 2– 12 , from throughout the Pikes Peak Region. The 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.
Although the Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale has garnered recognition and an exceptional array of awards abroad, its heart and spirit is firmly rooted in Colorado and the Colorado Springs community. It features an extensive statewide outreach program, including its High Altitude Youth Chorus, 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.
