The Boulder Chorale's mission is to enrich and inspire a broad community through music. The Chorale was founded in 1966 when members of the chorus of the Boulder Civic Opera decided to create a separate entity available to the opera and to rehearse and perform independently. Notable music directors include Caroline Bowles Wayland (1968-1986) and Timothy Snyder (2001-2010). Dr. Vicki Burrichter was named Artistic Director in July 2015. The choir presents three main concerts each season in addition to various collaborations and a joint holiday concert with the Boulder Children's Chorale. The Boulder Children's Chorale was created for the 2008-2009 season to provide an opportunity for youth to participate in the joys of choral singing. It currently includes five choirs differentiated by age and ability and is led by Artistic Director Shauna Keene. The Children's Choirs perform separately, together, with the Boulder Chorale's adult choirs, and in collaboration with other community ensembles.
