For more than three decades, the Colorado Children's Chorale has brought its artistry and charm to audiences throughout the world. With a diverse repertoire ranging from fully staged opera and musical theater to standard choral compositions in classical, folk and popular traditions, the Chorale performs with an innovative stage presentation and a unique theatrical spirit. In recognition of its artistic excellence, the Chorale was awarded the Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts, the Mayor's Award for Excellence in the Arts and the prestigious El Pomar Award for Excellence in Arts and Humanities.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director, Deborah DeSantis, and Associate Director, Mary Louise Burke, the Colorado Children's Chorale annually trains 400 members between the ages of seven and 14. Since its founding in 1974 by Duain Wolfe, the Chorale has sung countless performances with some of the world's finest performing arts organizations, including the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Central City Opera, Opera Colorado, Opera Omaha, Toledo Opera, the Aspen Music Festival, the Grand Teton Music Festival, and the BBC Orchestra and Chorus of Wales. The Chorale has appeared with world-renowned artists Placido Domingo, Zubin Mehta, James Levine and Richard Hickox. It also has performed for numerous dignitaries, including Pope John Paul II and the Dalai Lama, as well as presidents, emperors and first ladies of the world. Broadcast appearances include NBC's Today Show, CBS' Christmas special with Kathie Lee Gifford, the annual Spirit of the Season broadcast on CBS 4 Denver, and BBC broadcasts of the Chorale's Promenade Music Festival performance at Royal Albert Hall.
