... More About Us

The New Chords, are a non-profit singing group which has been performing in the Denver area for over 25 years.  They  have performed at the Governor's and Phipps mansions, the Museum of Natural History, shopping malls, churches, retirement centers and nursing homes and in Denver's premier hotels, restaurants and country clubs.  The group includes professionals from all walks of life, such as Lawyers, Doctors, Engineers and Educators.  The New Chords are proud to have represented Colorado at the 1998 American Festival of Music in Austria. We performed for European audiences in Prague, Vienna, Graz and Budapest.

The ensemble is composed of 20 singers, 5 in each section plus our Director/performer and our Piano accompanist.  The music is varied and might be characterized as "Pop" or Showtunes, although we often sing any music style you can think of, including classical and religious. To improve our entertainment value, most of our performances are memorized and choreographed.  The New Chords' singing season starts in September and ends in May.

The New Chords are usually available to perform anytime and anywhere in the Denver Area for your Function or Group of People.  Contact Us  for more information on having us at your next function.
