Boulder Children’s Chorale

Kate Klotz, Artistic Director

Thank you for your interest in the Boulder Children’s Chorale! Our organization consists of five ensembles for students from kindergarten through high school. We focus on helping expose children to diverse, quality choral repertoire while building their abilities as musicians and a love for singing!

Since our inaugural season in 2009, Boulder Children’s Chorale has frequently collaborated with professional musicians and ensembles including CU Opera and the Boulder Philharmonic, and regularly appears in The Nutcracker at Macky Auditorium. We have performed throughout Boulder and the Denver Metro area and have toured to several Children’s Choir Festivals in the United States. With a heavy emphasis on music education and building children’s individual talents, the BCC choirs help singers of all ages and abilities thrive!
