BCOC Receives Colorado Creates Grant

The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado has received a two-year Colorado Creates grant from Colorado Creative Industries (CCI). Colorado Creates is Colorado Creative Industries' largest grant program. This award provides financial support to help nonprofit arts organizations and communities produce arts and cultural activities, bringing jobs to their communities and enhancing the quality of life.

Colorado Creates Grants are given annually on a competitive basis. Proposals are reviewed by panels based on three review criteria: artistic excellence and merit of proposed activities, community involvement and benefit from proposed activities, and implementation capacity, such as effective planning, management, and budgeting of the organization and the project.

For the current fiscal year, a total of 180 grants were awarded in 47 counties across the state totaling $1.3M, an increase from the 162 grants awarded the prior year.

BCOC seeks Executive Director

The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado (BCOC) is the premier historically informed performing ensemble in the Rocky Mountain Region, regularly attracting the leading early music performers from across the country. Now in its eleventh year, the organization is in midst of an exciting five-year growth plan and is seeking a half-time Executive Director to help pursue new opportunities and expand its impact in the Rocky Mountain region and beyond. The executive director will be responsible for the development, implementation and expansion of the organization’s fundraising efforts, overseeing all business aspects of the organization, managing the day-to-day operations, and working closely with the board of directors and the artistic director on strategic planning. Our vision is to ultimately expand this half time position, increasing hours as the organization grows under the leadership of the executive director.
