The Denver Women's Chorus (DWC) was founded in 1984 with the goal of building community through music. We are a community chorus of women with equal interests in the excellence of our music and performances, as well as in the communities in which we live. DWC believes that music should challenge and inspire us towards individual growth and dynamic engagement in enriching the entire community; the chorus, our audience, and beyond. Though our origins lie in the lesbian community, we strive to be an inclusive chorus. We are open to everyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. All DWC concert music is signed in ASL.

Join the Denver Women's Chorus!

Singers, we would love for you to audition for the Denver Women's Chorus! Next season we will explore a concert that features the Women Of Country. This will be an extraordinary fun season and if you are not a fan of country you might want to still join us as we explore this genre of music in a choral way. The Denver Women's Chorus choses a different theme each season and pursues the theme with musical excellence, integrity and builds community both within the chorus and the Denver area. We are eager to invite new women singers that love to sing!

The chorus always works on a variety of challenging, exciting and beautiful music. The Denver Women's Chorus is accepting singers for the month of February 2017.
