“Every struggle [Dr. Vicki has] had has been important to the development of who [she is] as a conductor and a human being. We can all say that, right? As a woman in the field of conducting, it has not always been easy. Though it is gradually changing due to people like [her] former mentor Marin Alsop, women represent only 3% of all orchestral conductors, for example. Marin once advised [Dr. Vicki} to “make your projects – no one will give you anything,” and she was right. Read more Here!

“ ‘The sound of the oud is magnificent—mysterious and deep,” Burrichter says. “The three of them playing together was beautiful. I listened to them a lot, and then I thought I should listen to more Arabic music. I’m very excited about it, but it’s the most nerve-racking concert I’ve ever done, because it’s so outside what I know about.’ ” Read more Here!

“Winter is the coldest and darkest of seasons, but it is also a time that holds some of the warmest and brightest celebrations of the year. Most cultures and religions for centuries have brought light in to fend off the dark and then celebrated the return of the light in midwinter. This concert traces the history and development of many of the world’s most endearing holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season.“ Read more Here!

From Bel Canto’s Performance at Colorado Music Educators Association (CMEA) Conference
“That was about the best I’ve ever heard a children’s choir sound. Wonderful tone, dynamics, and presentation. Simply excellent” -Music Professor at University of Northern Colorado
“I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your performance at CMEA. I have been a music teacher for over 20 years and have seen hundreds of performances over the years. It is not often I hear a performance that brings me to tears as your performance did. The Words/Does the World Say set was absolutely phenomenal. The subject is so important, and your interpretation was beautiful. Your students’ haunting voices have touched my soul.” -Westminster Public School Music Teacher
December 2022 – FROM A FIRST TIME AUDIENCE MEMBER
“It was so wonderful to be present at the Celtic Winter Concert on Sunday!! I had never heard the Boulder Chorale and was so thrilled by the imaginative choice of music and the genuine sense of welcome for the entire audience. I was so impressed by how the Piccolini choir seemed to love not just singing, but singing from their hearts and really projected their voices – how do such little ones do that?? I sat with strangers who welcomed me and were connected to the choir through children or past performances. I came on my own because my daughter was the fiddle player and I don’t often get to hear her performing. Then I was treated to this special, special concert that was so polished with pieces in both Scottish and Irish Gaelic and wonderful harmonies. That concert was the beginning of my Christmas celebrations. Thank you for such a heartwarming evening!!”

“No words can express my appreciation to you and the Boulder Chorale for a wonderful afternoon full of joyful memories and wonderful music/singing. Yesterday was a day I will always remember for the rest of my life. SIdi Mansour took me back home to my beloved City “Sfax”. El-Helwa Di was a very popular song among our handball team players. It was requested on every road trip to an out of town game! In other words, I had a childhood memory with every song:) I loved it! THANK YOU!”
