Heartsong Festival

On November 4th, 2017, Skyline hosted the Heartsong Festival, bringing music education to young girls from our community.  Heartsong provides so much more than musical education, however.  It brings the joy of song into the lives of young girls who might not otherwise have access to music.  Heartsong is a supportive place for girls to build friendships, learn vocal skills, gain musical knowledge and perform!

Check out this live video from the event:

Skyline & Colorado Feeding Kids

It was a bright sunny Colorado morning when the women of Skyline Chorus arrived at FERN Warehouse to pack meals for Colorado Feeding Kids, a local charity.  The Skyline volunteers, alongside family members (including kids!), packed 18,000 of the 50,000 meals that were loaded on a truck bound for Houston Saturday, September 2nd. The ladies filled the warehouse with song and laughter infusing those meals with love and care.

Colorado Feeding Kids has been helping families in need for 10 years and is supported 100% by donations.  All work is performed by volunteers. 

CBS Channel 4 was on site for the event and interviewed Skyline's director, Vickie Maybury and Colorado Feeding Kids' president, Ken Bradley.

Skyline Chorus members arrived on a wave of hopeful expectations based on unparalleled preparation by Master Director, Vickie Maybury, inspiration from chorus leadership and the commitment of all chorus members. Striving to improve our previous overall results, the Skyline Chorus was thrilled to be awarded the amazing score of 724!
