Celebrating 50 years, the Durango Choral Society (DCS) draws singers from the Four Corners area interested in performing choral music. Our mission is to enhance the musical and cultural development of our community through the promotion and participation by the DCS members in musical programs for the benefit and enjoyment of the community.
Emphasis is placed on providing educational opportunities for both singing participants and audience members. Our four choruses - the 100-voice adult choir, the Durango Children's Chorale, the Durango Youth Chorus and the 16 elite voices of the Durango Women's Choir - perform jointly and independently. Productions often include visiting musicians, dancers and actors. We take special pride in in our collaborations and in showcasing our extraordinary hometown talent.
The Durango Choral Society is a Colorado nonprofit corporation. It is operated exclusively for those educational and charitable purposes permissible under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our funding support comes from event proceeds, singer tuition, event sponsorships, sustaining memberships and donations received from other private and public funding sources. Most importantly, it comes from supportive people like you.
We are deeply grateful to our loyal donors, singers and other volunteers for their commitment to the DCS. We always welcome extra help. If you are interested in volunteering to assist with fund raising, publicity, or would like further information about the Durango Choral Society choirs, please contact us.
