The Western Colorado Chorale performs works of great choral music that would not otherwise be heard in the Grand Valley.
Founded by Dr. Monte Atkinson in 1985, the 45-voice auditioned Chorale has performed many masterworks compositions such as the Bach B Minor Mass, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Carmina Burana, Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony, and many others.
The Western Colorado Chorale is directed by Dr. Monte Atkinson.
From the Music Director:
With the support from the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra and CMU, my dream of establishing a semiprofessional adult choral ensemble became a reality. Since 1984, years of countless performances provided by devoted singers, hours of volunteer leadership, wonderful audiences and vital financial support from so many have enabled the Chorale to become a permanent musical fixture in the Grand Junction community. For me, it has been a personal joy and honor to direct this wonderful choir.
I have programmed a year-long musical celebration to share this 30th Anniversary Season with music lovers of Western Colorado: one which reflects on the past, savors the present, and looks ahead to another year of great music. I hope you will join us for the celebration!
