As Easter was approaching in 1936, a group of music loving Longmont citizens formed a group to perform Handel’s Messiah, which planted the seed for the formation of the Longmont Chorale.  As the Chorale grew larger, the range of music they were able to offer to the community expanded to include such diverse works as Guys and Dolls, Carmina Burana, and the Mozart Requiem. Concerts were free in the early years with baskets passed for free-will donations.  Today the Longmont Chorale has grown into a non-profit organization requiring a Board of Directors, with fund-raising activities to support its operation.   Many artistic directors and accompanists have contributed to the growth of the Longmont Chorale throughout the years, bringing music from around the world to our community.
