© Longmont Chorale, P.O.
Box 902, Longmont, CO
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.
