This organization means a great deal to me, and I will continue to sing its praises, both literally and figuratively. I will also continue to contribute to it financially, both out of gratitude and in the hope that the young artists of today might have the chance to become the leading artists of tomorrow.

We use the power of the arts and historic preservation to enhance lives and communities. With ticket revenue accounting for only 15% of our annual budget, we rely on the generosity of patrons like YOU! Donations support our Summer Festival, young artists training, maintenance of our historic properties, and educational programs around CO.

#ColoradoGivesDay is one of our biggest fundraising days of the year–but you don’t have to wait until December 5th - early giving starts today. From now until December 5th, CCO is on a mission to raise funds from 150 individual donors for our education and community outreach, artist training, and historic preservation programs. Bonus: All donations made between Nov 1 - Dec 5 qualify for prizes and incentive fund matches, so donate today and help sustain Colorado’s oldest performing arts company!
