Greetings From Rhonda L Muckerman, Artistic Director/Conductor

Rhonda L Muckerman

Welcome to the Durango Choral Society's 2024 season!

As the new Artistic Director of the Durango Choral Society and Durango Women's Choir, I am thrilled and inspired to be a part of carrying out our mission to enhance the vocal, musical and cultural development of our community. I look forward to continuing our fine tradition of collaborating with regional choirs and instrumental ensembles, and participating in international tours with award-winning performances.

The Durango Choral Society is not only a community, but a family of dedicated and talented individuals. We come together through a shared love of music, spend hours of rehearsal time together and form life-long friendships. This energy is evident in our performances, where we present the best available choral repertoire, from classical to contemporary. Our programs are designed to touch the heart and inspire the spirit!

Our 2024 season includes collaborations with several organizations. In March, the Telluride Choral Society joins us once again for our spring concert "To the Stars!" where we will take you to the heights of celestial inspiration. Also in March, we welcome the Wellesley College Choir, performing in Durango for the first time ever. In June, the Durango Women's Choir will join voices for the first time post-pandemic with the Santa Fe Women's Choir in "Together Again!" with concerts in both Durango and Santa Fe. These joint concerts allow an opportunity for our audiences to experience fresh repertoire and new voices, as well as creating and fortifying bonds that cross not only the nearby mountains, but distant borders.

If you are looking for an evening of pure entertainment, remember to join us for our annual Cabaret in May, complete with buffet dinner, silent auction and the greatest hits of Broadway, featuring the Durango Choral Society and select soloists, with special guest Adam Swanson. Don't miss our biggest fundraiser of the year---wear your sparkles and get ready to be dazzled!

Whether you are a sponsor, patron, singer or audience member, please know how grateful we are for your support! From our talented children's choirs through our adult choirs, we could not fulfill our mission without you. Performing for you brings us the greatest joy imaginable and we look forward to many years in the future of magical moments, inspiration and love!
