What are 5280+ Senior Chorales?

One week in the summer of 2013, Brian Leatherman directed a choir for the national Road Scholar/Elderhostel program held in Fort Collins, CO. His long-time colleague, Cindy Runkel, served as accompanist. As the week of rehearsals and performance closed, Brian suggested that he and Cindy should pursue something like this in Denver following his impending retirement from public education.

 

Throughout 2014 they discussed and explored the possibility of a day-time, non-auditioned choir for seniors, and their vision became a reality when the first chorale began singing in August 2015!  

 

Why the name 5280+ ?  Since Denver, CO is known as the Mile High City (5280 feet above sea level), 5280 was adopted to reflect the target demographic of singers from 50 to 80+ years young!

If you have sung sometime in your life, want to return to singing, or have never sung outside of the shower, come meet new friends at educational and enjoyable weekly rehearsals. You will learn proper breathing techniques and how to improve your voice and posture through correct tone production.

 

Sessions culminate with combined performances as well as special concerts by the individual choirs or smaller groups
