Pine Creek's Choirs have built a reputation of excellence within our community. Our mission is to educate student musicians to read and perform music at an advanced level while developing their lifelong passion for music. There are six award winning choirs at Pine Creek: Chamber Singers, Concert Choir, Festival Singers, Fusion, Nuance, and Women's Ensemble.
In 2019 all of the Pine Creek Choirs received Superior ratings at the CHSAA Large Group Festival for the 21st year in a row. The Pine Creek Choirs continue to amaze and delight audiences with over 30 performances in the community, local businesses, and schools.
Festival Singers will perform for the Colorado Music Educators Association again in January 2020. This will be Pine Creek's fifth performance for CMEA!
