Join the Littleton Chorale!

In 1978, The Littleton Chorale began under founding director Bud Nicholson. Since the first downbeat, the Chorale has grown through the vision and leadership of six directors. Today, the Chorale numbers 70 singers strong (with room to grow!), with a membership drawn from throughout the southwest Denver metro area, including Littleton, Centennial, Parker, Highlands Ranch, Arvada, Castle Rock, Lakewood and Denver. The Chorale frequently collaborates with outstanding instrumental and choral ensembles including Kutandara Marimba Experience, the Colorado Chamber Orchestra, the Littleton Symphony Orchestra, the Colorado Wind Ensemble and the Young Voices of Colorado. When performing large choral/orchestral works professional vocal soloists are hired, and there are solo opportunities for members of the Chorale, as well. Performances are held throughout the southwest metro area in Arapahoe, Jefferson and Douglas counties. New music director and conductor, Michael Todd Krueger, continues the exciting tradition and vision of offering the best of choral music to audiences throughout Colorado.

Auditioning for the Littleton Chorale is relatively easy and takes just 10 minutes. No special preparation is necessary. Prospective members should have some choral singing experience and functional knowledge of music notation. The audition will begin informally so that our artistic staff can get to know you and gain an appreciation for your singing experience, level of interest and commitment. Following the brief interview, members of the artistic staff will lead you through the following exercises:

  • warm-up and vocalization to determine range, tonal quality and vocal flexibility
  • the singing of the melody "America" (My country 'tis of thee ...) unaccompanied
  • the sight-singing of basic melodies and rhythms
  • pitch memory and aural recall exercises

The season calendar, attendance policies and dues structure along with concert dress requirements and cost will be provided at the conclusion of the audition. Please know that all auditionees will be treated with the utmost care and sincerity. We know that singing is a very personal endeavor, and we respect all who come to audition for us. Decisions will be based on audition quality and the balance needs of the Chorale.  Auditions are regularly held in August and January, and at other times by special arrangement. If you enjoy performing outstanding choral literature at a high level with other like-minded and enthusiastic singers and you can commit to the responsibilities of membership in the Littleton Chorale, please contact us to set up an audition.  Chorale Manager, Carol Foster, will be glad to answer all of your questions.  Contact Carol by email at choralemanager@littletonchorale.org or by phone at (303) 973-9593.  Regular rehearsals are held on Mondays from 7-9:30 pm at Littleton United Methodist Church (see map).
