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.
