Who We Are


Our mission is to teach, create, and perform outstanding music and musical theater and to provide a high quality performing arts venue.


Transforming and Inspiring Community Through Excellence in Musical Artistry

The Evergreen Chorale began operating as Ovation West Performing Arts in July 2018.

Ovation West Performing Arts is a vibrant performing arts organization. This new name is the umbrella for all of our activities – the choir (Evergreen Chorale), Center Stage, our musical theatre productions, chamber choir (Altezza) and Summer Music Camp and our Shining Stars concert series.

From its early days as a small community singing group, the Evergreen Chorale has evolved over the past 47 years into one of the premier community choirs in the state, as well as a producer of high-quality musicals noteworthy for the professional caliber of its performers. The organization draws members, performers, and patrons from within and well beyond the mountain community; a testament to its success and growing reputation. We open Center Stage to community performing arts groups, as a meeting space for local organizations, and as a satellite exhibit space for local artists.

The choir will still be known as the Evergreen Chorale, and of course Center Stage will keep its name!  These and our other endeavors will be under the umbrella of Ovation West Performing Arts…a name with room for all!
