CHORAL SCHOLARS PROGRAM

“I am so grateful for the opportunities that the Colorado Springs Chorale gave me to help me learn and grow. All of the members were so helpful throughout the rehearsal process and I always felt welcome. Because of my time in Chorale, I will continue to sing for the rest of my life and so I just wanted to reach out to extend my eternal gratitude. Thank you for allowing students in the community the opportunity to sing with such an elite group because I can attest that it really can make a difference.” --Lindsay Jessen, Past Choral Scholar

Founded in 2006, the Colorado Springs Chorale’s Choral Scholars program seeks to instill a life-long love of choral singing by offering high school students the opportunity to join the Chorale for a semester. Students perform in Chorale-produced concerts as well as joining the Chorale in partnering with other musical organizations like the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, Opera Theatre of the Rockies, and the US Air Force Academy Band.

Students who are invited to participate in the program receive a scholarship that covers membership dues and sheet music. Students may be nominated by their school choral director, and those students who attend a school that does not offer choral classes may inquire directly about auditioning for the program.

To apply to the Choral Scholars program, students may request that their teachers submit a recommendation to the Chorale office, or they may contact the office to request an audition.
