Voices West was founded as the Littleton Choral Society by Bud Nicholson in 1978. Through the vision of six different directors and a few changes of name, Voices West is now one of the largest and most respected auditioned choral organizations in the Denver metro area.
The chorus draws singers and supporters from the Colorado Front Range including Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Centennial, and Denver. Performances take place throughout the southwest metro area. Voices West frequently collaborates with other music ensembles including the Colorado Chamber Orchestra, the Colorado Wind Ensemble and Young Voices of Colorado. Recent performances have included John Rutter’s Mass of the Children, the Mass in C Major by Beethoven, the Duruflé Requiem and Bernstein’s groundbreaking Mass.
About the Conductor:
After a distinguished teaching career at the college and university levels, Michael Todd Krueger has dedicated himself to the cause of the adult, avocational singer and to singing as a life-long proposition. Krueger currently serves as conductor and music director for two of the most prominent auditioned community choruses along the Front Range of Colorado: the 120-voice Larimer Chorale in Fort Collins (located 60 miles north of Denver), and the 75-member Voices West (formerly the Littleton Chorale, based in the south metropolitan Denver area). Krueger is also director of the Adult Choir and minister of music at King of Glory Lutheran Church in Arvada, Colorado and he maintains an active voice studio specifically for adults. Through these endeavors, he has become known for his inspiring musical leadership and a uniquely healthy approach to ensemble singing for adults.
