The Coal Creek Community Chorus is a vocal ensemble open to adult residents in and around Louisville, CO (including the communities of East Boulder County and Erie) who love to sing and are passionate about making exciting, beautiful music together. Rehearsing only once a week, the CCCC is designed to accommodate people from around the area who seek an expressive and musical outlet to round out their busy lives.
