For additional information about CVAE please visit About Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble: Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble (CVAE) was founded in 1992. Under the direction of Deborah Jenkins Teske, the Ensemble has garnered praise for “flawless sound” and “courageous programming,” and been hailed as “a hidden gem in the middle of Colorado.” Now embarking on its 4th decade of steadfast commitment to artistic excellence and community involvement, CVAE believes that art thrives where it is planted. CVAE’s annual concert series features traditional works and new music sourced from all over the world. Programming is carefully crafted and highly varied, designed to create memorable experiences for audiences. While a cappella singing is at the heart of CVAEs identity, collaborations have brought opportunities to explore a broader repertoire. Vital partnerships with the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs, Parish House Baroque, and the Colorado College Summer Music Festival have allowed for performance of such diverse works as Brahms’ A German Requiem, Menotti’s The Unicorn, the Gorgon, and the Manticore. and Stravinsky’s Les Noces. Other important collaborators have included the Green Box Arts Festival, Ormao Dance Company, Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale, The Denver Brass, and The Colorado Ballet Society.
