The Chorale is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, based in Fort Collins, Colorado. Your support provides us with a large portion of our operating budget and keeps us singing. Additional funding comes from our annual fundraising campaign, corporate donations, ticket sales, program advertising, and foundation grants. Committed singers, united for a cause, have the power to make a difference in our communities. We are community-based and volunteer-driven, embracing a wide range of avocational singers. Under our creative umbrella, people from all walks of life come together to sing and make music simply because that is what they love to do.  Through our concerts, events, and outreach activities, we actively demonstrate that singing is a life-long endeavor that brings fulfillment and enrichment to singers and audiences alike.

We are YOUR choir. Your financial support of the Larimer Chorale is an investment in our future, and in the future of the arts in your community. As we continue to provide the soundtrack to important life moments, we need your time, talents, and treasures to help us meet our goals.  Through our concerts, events, and outreach activities, we actively demonstrate that singing is a life-long endeavor that brings fulfillment and enrichment to singers and audiences alike.
