Spring is here! The choirs are embarking on a busy time of year, so here is a list of upcoming performances for your convenience:
Advanced Women's Ensemble - Tuesday, April 4th at 7:00pm - We will be performing at CMU's Choral Showcase, which features a top ensemble from each of the valley's four high schools as well as one of CMU's own ensembles. The concert begins at 7:00pm and takes place in the recital hall, located in the music building on CMU's campus. There is a small ticket price for friends and family wishing to view the concert ($5 students/$10 adults). Seating will be limited.
All Choirs - Tuesday, April 11th at 7:00pm - Our pre-festival concert will take place in the GJHS auditorium, starting at 7:00pm, and ending no later than 8:30pm. All choral ensembles will be performing.
Westwinds - Friday, April 14th at 7:00pm - We are excited to collaborate with the GJHS jazz bands this year to offer an evening of jazz at Ella's Blues Room, located at 336 Main Street. We've been given the opportunity to perform in this public venue for free, so we hope you'll come support our jazz musicians as well as this fun, New Orleans-style restaurant on Friday the 14th. Westwinds and 5th Hour Jazz have a swingin' closer in store for you!
Men's Choir - Tuesday, April 18th at 7:00pm - Men's choir will be singing as the high school exposition group at East Middle School's pre-festival concert, which takes place in the GJHS auditorium. The men are sounding fantastic, and we're hopeful that our performance will encourage these younger students to keep singing when they get to high school.
All Choirs - Friday, April 21st - Colorado West Festival takes place at CMU every year. I'm very excited to see how our ensembles do in competition this year. Performance times are:

Advanced Women's Ensemble - 10:00am - Recital Hall
