The compositions of Cole Porter and George and Ira Gershwin dominated musical theater in the 1920's and 30's. Let the Silvertones of the Larimer Chorale take you back to a time when love was innocent, movies were black and white, and dancing and singing went hand in hand.
The Silvertones of the Rockies continue to gain momentum and popularity as the largest senior choir in the state of Colorado. Let us show you what the buzz is all about with a concert that celebrates several genres of music.
Members of the Larimer Chorale will be embarking on a concert tour of Poland and eastern Germany in June. The music on this evening's program is a preview of the music that will be performed on that tour.
After composing thirty-nine operas, Gioachino Rossini retired from opera composition and turned his attention to sacred choral music.

The Larimer Chorale earned more than $12,000 of that – enough to pay the orchestra costs for one of our major concerts. Everyone can give on Colorado Gives Day -- the minimum gift is $10, making it possible for many to make a difference. This year, we want to build another orchestra AND cover the costs for four guest artists.
