Concert Schedule 2012/2013
Concert I - October 26 and 27
"Sacred and Profane"
Great classic anthems, followed by music for trick-or-treating.
Concert II - December 7 and 8
"Carols and Bells"
The Kokapelli Handbell Choir joins the Chorale for our annual carols concert in the beautiful CMU recital hall. Always a traditional favorite.
Concert III - March 18 and 19, 2013
The Chorale is joined by members of the GJSO for this stirring tribute to freedom, patriotism and democracy. Our orchestral concerts are always popular.
** Season Note: The Western Colorado Chorale will join the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra on April 23, 2013 for a Masterworks Concert to end the season. The GJSO and the Chorale will perform works of Verdi, including Stabat Mater and Te Deum. Contact the GJSO office for tickets to that event.
From the Music Director:
Each season brings another wonderful opportunity for the Western Colorado Chorale to learn and perform great music for all to enjoy. Following many of our recent concerts, I have frequently heard, “This was the Chorale’s best concert ever; how are you going to top this”? I think our WCC 2012-2013 Concert Season - our 28th, might just be the best yet. I am certain you will enjoy each concert! I have really enjoyed putting our new season together.
