The Colorado Choir, founded in 1976, is one of the most dynamic influences in the Colorado music scene. Today the choir specializes in performing the significant compositions for a cappella choir as well as accompanied works. See the Choir website for available CDs and more information on our performances and activities. More information is available at www.coloradochoir.org.
Conductor Kelly Parmenter brings over 30 years of choral conducting experience to the Colorado Choir. She has been the Choral and Orchestral Conductor at Arapahoe High School for the past 28 years as well as the chair of the Performing Arts Department. Kelly is active in the American Choral Directors Association and the Colorado Music Educators National Conference and is a well-recognized professional member of the Denver music community. Kelly was a singer with the Colorado Choir since 1980 and has been a Soprano Soloist, Alto Section Leader, served on the board of directors and was an Assistant Conductor for many years.
Since 1997, Augustana Arts has been serving the community by presenting the artistry of resident performing groups, internationally renowned touring artists and accomplished locally-based ensembles of many genres. The resident groups, Musica Sacra Chamber Orchestra (MSCO) and the Colorado Women’s Chorale (CWC) perform at a variety of venues in addition to the majestic Augustana Lutheran Church in Denver. Augustana Arts serves educational outreach through the City Strings program, an inspired vision guided by violinist Robyn Sosa. City Strings provides access to high quality, private music instruction free of cost to metro area students.
Augustana Arts concerts and programs are made possible in part by generous support from the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, the Anschutz Foundation, the Augustana Foundation, the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and several other community partners.
