The Mancos Valley Chorus had to cancel all performances for 2020 but hope to met in the Fall of 2021 to start singing again!

Mancos Valley Chorus participants are mostly Mancos Valley residents, but not limited to Mancos. The chorus offers two semi-annual concert series performing at four different venues in Mancos, Cortez, and Durango. The chorus requires non-profit status for the donations they receive which along with grants and fundraisers help to pay for their Director, Maggie Gillette and an accompanist.

Maggie Gillette has been the Mancos Valley Chorus Director since 2019. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Arizona State University in Music Education and has spent the last five years teaching band and choir at Dolores Secondary School. Maggie was a singer with the chorus before she took over the reins two years ago.
