Founded in 1984, the Denver Women's Chorus (DWC) exists to build community through music. Although our origins lie in the lesbian community, we are open to everyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. 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. 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 classical music that has birthed contemporary music. The concert will feature melodies and harmonies that have morphed into new songs with traditional roots. The chorus always works on a variety of challenging, exciting and beautiful music. The DWC will be starting work on the International GALA festival that will be held in Denver in July of 2016. Women that would like to sing for this festival should plan on auditioning for the chorus in the fall.

The first rehearsal for our fall season is Sunday, August 30, 2015, from 6-9 pm at Montview Boulevard Presbyterian Church, 1980 Dahlia St, Denver, CO 80220. You will get to experience a full Denver Women’s Chorus rehearsal, watch a mock audition, and schedule your own audition. There will not be a rehearsal on September 6 (Labor Day). The chorus remains open for new women auditioning until the last Sunday of September. If you are interested, please email us at info@rmarts.org or just show up to rehearsal on August 30.

"I sing with this community of women for the beauty of passion and joy expressed in their voices."

- Ann Afton
