where words fail, music speaks.
—Hans Christian Anderson
Founded in 2006, Sine Nomine is a contemporary, auditioned chamber chorus based in Denver, Colorado. Our concerts feature an eclectic mixture of music that has become our signature. We are passionate about singing. We believe that music is powerful beyond words — building bridges, healing hearts, lifting spirits, enriching lives — doing what words alone can never do.
Our mission is to create and sustain an inviting community. Music is the medium for our welcoming and optimistic message of diversity. Our wide range of musical styles engages our members and audience, and
reflects the brilliance of the world around us. We encourage the development and introduction of new music by supporting commissions and by developing collaborative relationships with contemporary composers.
Please join us as for our Spring concert on April 1, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. and April 2, 2017 at 2 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Denver.
On May 5 and 6, 2017, Sine Nomine will join Harmony, a Colorado chorale, in presenting Tyler's Suite, under the direction of Dr. Timothy Seelig. May 5 will be performed at the Broomfield Auditorium (7:30 p.m). Saturday will be in Denver at Central Presbyterian Church, also at 7:30 p.m.
Tyler’s Suite is a new and lauded nine-piece choral movement dedicated to the memory of Tyler Clementi, a talented young musician who died by suicide after being bullied by his roommate during his first weeks of college. Created under the leadership of Composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) and Dr. Timothy Seelig (Conductor/Artistic Director of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus), Tyler’s Suite explores the voices and experiences of Tyler and his family through the music of nine of today’s top composers, including Ann Hampton Callaway and Stephen Schwartz.
This powerful collection of songs moves audiences and singers alike and ultimately shines a light of hope for a safer, kinder world in line with the mission of the Tyler Clementi Foundation, which works to end all forms of online and offline bullying in schools, workplaces, and faith communities
