Transforming and Inspiring Community Through Excellence in Musical Artistry

DEIA Mission

Ovation West’s focus on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility demonstrates our enduring commitment to the pursuit of respect, belonging, and trust. There is no intention of being finished. As we build and foster an inclusive culture, we will accomplish extraordinary things through our artistic work. 

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

Ovation West Performing Arts, is a vibrant performing arts organization and community partner that produces choral concerts and musical theater shows, provides a fully equipped venue for other performing arts organizations, and offers music education through our choir, internship program, and music theater camp. Since its “birth” in 1972 when a group of friends gathered around a piano to share their love of music, the Evergreen Chorale has grown to a diverse body of well over 100 talented and committed performers, become owner of a performing arts venue (Center Stage), and partnered with several performing arts organizations throughout Jefferson County and the greater Denver area to present choral concerts and stage musicals for a wide variety of patrons from throughout the region.

Why the name change?

You’ve known us for 48 years as the Evergreen Chorale, and our mission remains the same.  The organization has expanded over the years and we felt the need to create a new name which can serve as an 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.

So – 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!

From its start as a small community singing group, the organization has evolved tremendously over the past 48 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. Ovation West Performing Arts 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.
