AURORA — The fifth-annual CHSAA Vocal Music Gala is slated for Friday, May 1, at the University of Denver’s Newman Center for the Performing Arts beginning at 6 p.m.

Twelve of the state’s top choirs are scheduled to appear, including groups from the following high schools: Discovery Canyon, Montezuma-Cortez, Doherty, Mountain View, Lewis-Palmer, Rifle, Lutheran, Prairie View, Castle View, Greeley Central and Eaton. The Newman Center is located at 2344 East Iliff Avenue on the DU campus.

Each of the performing groups earned their right to take the stage on May 1 after their performances during the CHSAA Large Group Music Festivals which have professionally-trained vocal music judges evaluating and rating each group. Those selected were among the top-rated groups across the state.

Tickets are $10 for adults, with K-12 students and Senior Citizens (60 & over) $7. DU Pioneer Card holders are $5. On-site parking is $8 per vehicle (cash only). Please note that persons needing accommodations for a disability should call the box office as early as possible.
