About Us

The Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble (CVAE) is a regionally acclaimed chamber choir dedicated to excellence in the choral art. Founded in 1992 by Deborah Jenkins Teske, an accomplished conductor of choral music and opera, CVAE is committed to artistic excellence and community involvement. 


CVAE is dedicated to both traditional choral works and new, innovative programming. While primarily an a cappella chamber ensemble, CVAE performs with other organizations on a regular basis. Past collaborations have included work with the Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale, the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs, The Denver Brass, Ormao Dance Company, and the Colorado Youth Ballet.
