Canto Deo Choir – upcoming Lenten service, Love Divine: Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs for the Season of Lent, celebrates the relationship between God and all people. Borrowing words of worship from the Old and New testaments, we focus on the light, love, and presence of God in our lives and our grateful response. Join us as we reflect on these ideas through the perspective of composers Josef Rheinberger, Ola Gjeilo, and Thomas Hewitt Jones. This service will be held Sunday, March 26, 2023 at 3:00pm at Bethany Lutheran Church in Cherry Hills Village; and on Sunday, April 2, 2023 at 3:00pm at St. Elizabeth of Hungary in Denver.

Colorado Korean Chorus
“To elevate the cultural and human experience through chorale excellence to the community and to its membership”
The CKC is a Colorado Korean Chorus, formed in 2005 by a small group of local choral enthusiasts in the community. Since then, the CKC has established itself as one of Colorado’s long-standing Korean community chorus. The CKC’s mission is “elevate the cultural and human experience through choral excellence to the community and to its membership”.
The choral ensemble is comprised of volunteer singers under the direction of dedicated artistic director Dr. Taehyun Kim. The CKC singers reside throughout the greater Denver area, largely in Arapahoe county.
Some serve as vocal instructors, music instructors, church choir conductors, and others are pastors, doctors, nurses, counselors, engineers, accountants, realtors, financial analysts, social workers, small business owners, and homemakers – all brought together in weekly rehearsals for shared choral excellence. The CKC performs in seasonal concerts annually and in other special concerts throughout the year. In 2015, The CKC celebrated its 10th anniversary in a very special concert titled “Arirang”. Through this concert, CKC has witnessed tremendous growth in choral excellence and has received accolades from the community.

with Lamont Brass Ensemble and Rick Seaton – Organ
How can a brass ensemble possibly recreate the infinite expanse and unknowable wonder of outer space in a concert hall? By bringing in more brass, of course! The Denver Brass is joined by The Lamont School of Music Brass Ensemble and Organist Rick Seaton to bring you the sounds of the great beyond. Prepare for blast off with recognizable masterworks like Ride of the Valkyries and The Planets, then drift way out beyond the Kuiper Belt with the premieres of TWO brand new compositions by Sean Schafer Hennessy and Brian Pfoltner.
From music for royalty: Henry VIII, George VI, QE I & II, Victoria and Princess Diana; to pop music by the Queen of Soul, the King of Rock ‘n Roll, the King of Pop, Nat King Cole, and Queen; the Chorale and The CherryTones have Kings and Queens covered!
The Chorale was founded in Arapahoe County in 1980 by former students and parents of the Cherry Creek school system to allow committed singers to continue performing and to provide the community with the joy of fine music, beautifully sung. We became a 501(c)(3) organization in 1986. We have had three Artistic Directors in our 36 years, including the current Artistic Director & Conductor, Brian Patrick Leatherman, now in his 21st season.
Today we have 135 members. Our repertoire ranges across the whole choral spectrum, including religious and secular classics, modern works, popular music, spirituals, jazz, and regional and folk favorites. We regularly commission new works and new arrangements of already-published works.
The CherryTones, a sixteen-member a cappella vocal ensemble established in 2012-13 by our Outreach Committee and drawn from our chorale members, adds variety to our regular concerts and sings on its own in new venues, with a pop/rock/jazz repertoire designed to attract new listeners.
