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 theme of Water. Water is an element that is essential to life, and we will examine the impact of water on life by exploring its political, life giving and transformative aspects. This concert will feature a new commissioned work by Christina Whitten and text by one of our members, Hilary Hellums.

The chorus always works on a variety of challenging, exciting and beautiful music. We will have an open rehearsal on Sunday, August 28, 2016, from 6-9 pm. The rehearsals are held in the basement of Montview Presbyterian Church in the Park Hill area. This rehearsal is a great opportunity for anyone interested in joining the chorus to experience a rehearsal and learn more about our chorus. There will be an opportunity to sign up for an audition, which will be held on another date. Auditions are easy and painless. The chorus does not rehearse on Labor Day but continues Sunday evening rehearsal after that weekend. For more information please email us at info@rmarts.org.

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

- Ann Afton
