About the Colorado Symphony Chorus
The 2012-2013 Colorado Symphony concert season marks the 29th year for the CSO Chorus. Founded in 1984 by Duain Wolfe at the request of Gaetano Delogu, then the Music Director of the Symphony, the chorus has grown, over the past two decades, into a nationally respected ensemble. This outstanding chorus of over 200 volunteers joins the Colorado Symphony for numerous performances, and radio and television broadcasts, to repeat critical acclaim. The Chorus has performed at noted music festivals in the Rocky Mountain region, including the Aspen Music Festival, the Colorado Music Festival, the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival and the Grand Teton Music Festival. The Colorado Symphony Chorus has appeared at select public and special events and has collaborated with many renowned Colorado arts ensembles. In July 2009, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the chorus, Duain Wolfe led the chorus on a 3-country, 11-day concert tour of Europe, presenting the Verdi Requiem in Budapest, Vienna, Litomysl and Prague. From Evergreen to Lochbuie, and Boulder to Castle Rock, singers travel each week to rehearsals and performances in Denver totaling about 80 per year. The Colorado Symphony continues to be grateful for the excellence and dedication of this remarkable all-volunteer ensemble!
