Welcome to the Boulder Chorale

It is with great sadness that we are announcing the cancellation of the remainder of our 2019-20 Chorale season due to the impacts of COVID-19. As announced earlier, Colorado MahlerFest has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s MahlerFest, including the Mahler Symphony No. 2 performance with the Boulder Concert Chorale.

In addition, we have cancelled our Children’s Chorale performance of All that Jazz, which included Bob Chilcott’s beautiful composition, A Little Jazz Mass, due to continuing social gathering restrictions. We hope to reschedule this exciting Children’s Chorale performance in the fall.

In the meantime, our Artistic Directors and artistic staff are working to plan next year’s programming so that we are ready to support you, our audience and membership community, when it is once again safe to resume public gatherings.

We know that this is a difficult and trying time for so many in our community and throughout the world. We are especially grateful for the healthcare providers and first responders, educators, and essential workers, including those within our own Chorale membership, who are working on the frontlines. We also greatly appreciate those of you who have donated your tickets from our cancelled performances in lieu of a refund. Please know that we are using these resources to continue supporting our valued staff.

Tuesday, May 5, has been designated #GivingTuesdayNow to bring the world together for an international day of giving and unity, supporting the emergency response and unprecedented needs caused by COVID-19. As you are able, please consider supporting the small businesses, first responders, and nonprofits within our community that you love, including the Boulder Chorale.

As ever, we are grateful for your support. As we continue through this time of social distancing, our thoughts are with each of you. We look forward to the time when we will once again be able to come together in music and harmony.

On behalf of all of us at the Chorale,

Beth Zacharisen
Boulder Chorale Board President
