Diversity and Inclusion

Ovation West Performing Arts seeks to cultivate an atmosphere of inclusion and respect for all of our performers and patrons. We do not discriminate and welcome people of all abilities, ages, race, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, religions, marital status, veteran and military status, national origin and political beliefs to participate in our programs.

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 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. 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!
