We perform a variety of musical styles at various venues around the county. Our usual schedule consists of three programs during the year.

Each December we perform a variety of holiday music. In 2016 & 2017, we performed our holiday concert in collaboration with the Summit Concert Band and the Summit County Orchestra at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge.  In addition, we presented the Third Annual Community Sing-a-Long in December 2017, featuring holiday favorites and excerpts from Handel’s Messiah, at the Silverthorne Pavilion.

Our spring programs generally feature sacred music. Recent programs included the Fauré Requiem (2018) and A World of Adventure (2017), a concert of international music.

Our summer programs lean toward light popular music.  “Music from the Movies” was our theme for 2017, and a program of popular summertime favorites was featured in our 2016 program, “On the Road.”

Touring Opportunities

In May, 2015, members of the Summit Choral Society traveled to New York City to perform the Rutter Requiem at Carnegie Hall, under the direction by John Rutter, with members of ten other choruses from around the country.

The Summit Choral Society will gear up for two significant concerts in 2019.  We will return to Carnegie Hall with Mid-America Productions, with our own Dr. Jill Schroeder-Dorn as the selected director for this concert.  In addition, we will perform a Memorial Day Concert at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.
