About the Artists:

The Greeley Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1981, presenting its first concert on October 30, 1981. Through the years, the orchestra has grown from a very modest group of 17 musicians to its present size of over thirty-five. The orchestra has been allowed to perform all its concerts in the majestic sanctuary of the Trinity Episcopal Church, a setting that is acoustically perfect and visually stunning.


The music the orchestra performs during its five-concert season is exciting and unique. The Greeley Chamber Orchestra has presented not only a varied spectrum of works but has featured some of the finest talents of Northern Colorado, many of whom are faculty at the remarkable School of Music of the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. The Orchestra is joined twice a year by the Greeley Chamber Choir to perform works for choir and orchestra.


The repertoire of the Greeley Chamber Orchestra certainly focuses on music of the Baroque (Bach, Boyce, Handel, Telemann, and Vivaldi) and Classical (Beethoven, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert) periods but has also featured the music of various late 19th century (Brahms, Debussy, Ravel, Tchaikovsky and Wagner) as well as 20th century composers (Argo, Ehle, Prokofiev, Puccini, Shostakovich and Sibelius,) The Greeley Chamber Orchestra is comprised of talented musicians from the northern Colorado and southern Wyoming area who take time from their busy schedules to collectively perform music. The musicians of the groups come from all walks of life and include accountants, computer engineers, homemakers, nurses, pharmacists, physicians, sales persons, teachers and students. This remarkable group of volunteers comes together every week to prepare the world’s finest music, driven by their passion for wonderful music
