CHEIM is an educational outreach program
of the Colorado Chamber Orchestra.
Thomas Blomster, Music Director of the Colorado Chamber Orchestra, was happy to include Debbie's program as part of his established non-profit organization because it's completely in-line with his vision for the Chamber Orchestra:
The Colorado Chamber Orchestra (CO) "elevates pride in our state through quality music performance of and for the people of Colorado." Attracting Metro Denver's finest professional musicians, the CCO performs a varied repertoire that's accessible to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Core to the mission is in-school education that brings a love of music to area youth and expands support for the arts. The CCO believes that music, beautifully played, can transform people's lives.
Thomas Blomster enjoys working with the elementary Band and Orchestra students at the end of the year with our Grand Finale Concerts. He arranges cross-generational tunes, such as "Mission Impossible" and the Beatles "Birthday Song" ("They Say it's Your Birthday!") for a mass garage band/orchestra performance, bringing in a few of the professional members of the Colorado Chamber Orchestra to perform side-by-side with the students.
