Grantee Profile: St. Martin’s Chamber Choir
St. Martin’s Chamber Choir is a professional ensemble of 24 voices that performs classical choral music, primarily a cappella. Founded in 1994 by Artistic Director Timothy Krueger, the repertoire focuses on “ancient-future” programming – neglected works from the past and lesser known contemporary works.
The St. Martin’s Chamber Choir’s mission is to present live choral chamber music performed to the highest professional standards and to inspire appreciation of the choral art through outreach and education. St. Martin’s is recognized as the region’s foremost choir of its size, presenting artistically excellent and imaginative concert programs.
In addition to a concert series, St. Martin’s Chamber Choir has performed as part of the Friends of Chamber Music Series, the Denver Handel Festival Series and the Chorus America National Conference. They have released 12 critically-acclaimed CD recordings that have been featured on nationally syndicated radio programs and they regularly appear on classical radio stations across the United States. Colorado Public Radio also broadcasts their concerts live and as webcasts.
Bonfils-Stanton Foundation offers general operating support for St. Martin’s Chamber Choir. The upcoming 2017/18 season includes 16 concerts that range from works by the 16th c. Lutheran composers and their successors to four performances at Christmastime – and even a collaboration with the Colorado Wind Ensemble in a performance of a world premiere by Daniel Kellogg, a renowned Colorado-based composer.
