A Personal Message from Linda Weise, Founding Executive Director

For 20 years, we have depended on the generosity of people like you to help us present world-class performing arts programming along the Front Range. People like you, who believe in the enduring power of our cultural legacy.

Thanks to your support, 99% of the high school graduates in our CORE afterschool program pursue collegiate studies, often with significant scholarships. We witness CSC alumni as they succeed in operating rooms, board rooms, and green rooms; becoming the creative and compassionate leaders of the future. Currently six Conservatory alumni are on the faculty, returning to give back to the school and the community.

On behalf of the board of directors, mentors, students and families, thank you for believing in us.
