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.
"I sing with this community of women for the beauty of passion and joy expressed in their voices."
Join the Denver Women's Chorus!
Female singers, we would love for you to audition for the Denver Women's Chorus. Next season we will team up with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and be featured in Boettcher Concert Hall as the CSO kicks off their fall season with the Pops Orchestra. Our own fall season will be filled with opportunities for singing and community as the chorus prepares for the January 2015 concert: Broadway and Aliens!
We will have our first rehearsal on Sunday, August 17, 2014 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 for later that week. If you are interested, send an inquiry at email@example.com or just show up to rehearsal on August 17.
