Welcome to the Denver Gay Men’s Chorus holiday show, Haul Out the Jolly. This marks the 10th and final holiday show conducted by James Knapp, Artistic and Managing Director of DGMC, and as such, this concert is both emotional and bittersweet, as James finishes his last season with DGMC before retiring.
But before James leaves us, we have planned an extra special season for his final hurrah! DGMC will be performing Disney Pride in Concert, the first ever Disney-licensed choral performance and DGMC will be the third chorus in the world to perform this piece at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House on March 31 and April 1, 2023. With Disney visual assets from the source material accompanying the chorus, and a 25-piece orchestra, this promises to be the biggest DGMC show ever performed!
And for his final concert series, James and DGMC will hold a spectacular June Pride concert, Divas: Icons and Justice Warriors, featuring songs from the powerful women of pop music who helped teach the gay community to find their true selves and family. In addition, we are excited to announce a very special guest star who will join DGMC for this Pride concert in the coming weeks!
So, sit back and let the concert fill you with the spirit of the holidays!
RMAA Executive Director
Thank you for joining us in our first concert after our epic and successful 40th anniversary last year. Welcome to season 41! We are so happy that you are joining us for the magic of the Holidays and the beauty we hope to share with you in this concert.
In our Holiday 2022 program, we have crafted a musical journey showcasing the versatility of the chorus’s repertoire highlighting the JOY and FUN of the season. It will be my last Holiday concert, as I am retiring in July 2023 after 41 years of conducting, ten of those years with DGMC. We have put in some of our very favorite songs! DGMC also has a special tribute to those who were killed, injured, and affected by the shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs. We stand in solidarity with them.
As part of my last year, DGMC will be creating the largest project in its history, presenting Disney Pride in Concert on March 31 and April 1 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. This collaboration is the first time Disney Concerts, Inc. has partnered with gay choruses to create an LGBTQ-specific concert package. Disney’s beloved catalog of songs will be reimagined and be musical celebration of LGBTQ life, love, family, and perseverance.
The full-length show will draw inspiration from iconic Disney films like The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Mary Poppins; modern classics like Coco, Zootopia; and the magical music of Disney Parks. The multimedia extravaganza will feature DGMC’s 120 voices and a 25-piece orchestra performing sparkling new musical arrangements, accompanied by choreography and visual assets from Disney’s films and archives. Providing the narrative of the show, personal stories from diverse chorus members will be interwoven throughout the musical performances, showcasing the individual meaning and connections drawn from Disney’s timeless and universal music. This is a once in lifetime not to be missed concert.
Now on with this show! The singers have been very busy since September with more than 50 hours of rehearsal to bring you the very best of DGMC.
It is our sincere hope that our musical gift to you will spirit you into, and through, the holidays and well into the New Year. We deeply appreciate your support and thank you for being a part of our community of joy.
Here we go. Hop on board the rainbow rollercoaster!

James Knapp is an international choral conductor, music educator and master vocal technician with a unique approach to activist choral singing. A passionate campaigner for stylistic diversity within choral singing, Mr. Knapp comes with 20 years of experience with GALA Choruses (Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses), having been the Artistic Director of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Houston from 2001-2009, the founding director of the Bayou City Women’s Chorus (2005-2009), Out Loud – The Colorado Springs Men’s Chorus (2013-2016) and the Denver Gay Men’s Chorus from 2013-present.
With over 41 years of leading university, church, and community choruses, James Knapp is the Artistic Director Emeritus of the Bayou City Performing Arts, the recipient of Certificate of Congressional Recognition from the United States House of Representatives for artistic excellence to further the cause of social justice, a Mayoral Proclamation of James Knapp Day in Houston, and was elected the Grand Marshall for the Houston Pride Parade in 2009 by the LGBTQ+ community.
His choruses have appeared at Carnegie Hall, regional conventions of the American Choral Directors Association, and performed concert tours throughout Britain, Europe and Russia. They have performed with the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, the Houston Symphony and the Colorado Symphony. James has taught choral workshops throughout the US, in Europe, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Singapore, and Thailand, and he served as Artistic Director of the Gay Games VII in Chicago in 2006.
James is a graduate of Fredonia State University, The Mozarteum Conservatory of Music in Salzburg and the University of Texas at Austin.
In his fourth season as the Associate Artistic Director of the Denver Gay Men’s Chorus and Director of Off Kilter! is Raul Dominguez (he, him, his). Originally from Houston, TX, Raul is also the Director of Choral Activities at Regis University in Denver and thoroughly enjoys his ability to work in academia while maintaining an active role in civic music. In 2022, he earned his Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from the University of Colorado Boulder, a Master of Arts degree in Choral Conducting from Ithaca College in 2019, and two Bachelors of Arts degrees in Music Education and Vocal Performance from Oklahoma City University in 2008.
Between his undergraduate and graduate work, Raul was the Choir Director at Clear Lake High School in Houston. During his four years at LAKE, his ensembles were recognized with invitations to perform with the Houston Symphony, the Houston Chamber Choir, and Carnegie Hall.
Ricki Vorrath-Moyer attended Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan, then received her Bachelor’s of Music degree in Organ Performance at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She went on to receive her Master’s of Music degree in Organ Performance, with minor emphases in Choral Conducting and Piano Pedagogy.

A business graduate of The University of Tulsa, Ken Leist quickly turned his career focus to the performing arts after finding his passion for the stage while touring with the world-renowned organization Up with People. His production experience encompasses roles both on stage and behind the scenes. He has performed in over 13 countries and on the high seas, and has also had the opportunity to perform in and help produce global events such as World Youth Day ’93 in Denver, CO, World Expo ’00 in Hanover, Germany, World Youth Day ’00 in Rome, Italy, World Expo ’05 in Nagoya, Japan and the Tournament of Roses Parade ’11 in Pasadena, CA. Ken is proud to be part of such a talented artistic team with DGMC and celebrates you for supporting the arts in Denver. Enjoy the show!
The health and safety of all artists, members, and patrons remain our top priority. At present for our upcoming live season, masks are not required nor do you need to show your vaccine card at the door. All performers, volunteers and staff are fully vaccinated.
We are committed to the health and safety of our singers, artists, staff, and audiences. You, as a member of the audience, play an important role in helping us ensure that safety.
In turn, know that our commitment extends from the moment you purchase your ticket until the moment you leave the venue after the curtain call.
You can count on us to do three important things: to keep your safety and comfort top of mind, to be transparent about procedures and protocols, and to be timely about notifying you if anything changes.
We will update this page and inform all ticket holders as guidelines change.
All current DGMC staff, volunteers, instrumentalists, and singers are fully vaccinated and have complied with COVID-19 guidelines throughout the planning and rehearsal process. We are working to eliminate as many touch-points as possible, including contactless mobile ticketing, digital programs, and more.
These safety protocols will be updated periodically in accordance with the RMAA COVID Task Force, CDC, state, and local recommendations regarding singing and performing in large groups. As such, all concerts and events are subject to change.
The Denver Gay Men’s Chorus has been an LGBTQ catalyst for change through musical excellence since its founding in 1982. With more than 300 concerts during its 41-year history, this 140-member ensemble is now recognized as the premier gay performing arts organization in the Rocky Mountain Region. Through its diverse and socially charged programming, DGMC’s reimagined choir concerts entertain, educate, inspire, and empower audiences to foster acceptance and tolerance throughout the greater Denver area and along Colorado’s Front Range communities.
DGMC has performed in Denver and around the U.S. in acclaimed concert halls including Boettcher Concert Hall, the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, Gates Hall, the Paramount Theatre, the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and Carnegie Hall. Additionally, they have delivered groundbreaking performances at Coors Field, in the US Air Force Academy Chapel, and on the steps of the Colorado State Capitol as part of inaugural festivities for Governor Jared Polis. They have traveled to 12 states, the District of Columbia, and Canada and have made joint appearances with several gay men’s choruses in major U.S. cities.
They have premiered new-commissioned choral works by 14 composers, including Andrew Lippa, Nathan Hall, Alan Shorter, James Deignan, and Craig Carnahan. Guest artists that have given extraordinary performances alongside DGMC include Alan Cummings, Margaret Cho, Diane Schurr and Ann Hampton Calloway. DGMC has performed twice with the Colorado Symphony.
In the name of advocating for a better tomorrow, DGMC has collaborated with The Matthew Shepard Foundation, the LGBT Community Center of Colorado, the Colorado AIDS Project, One Colorado, the Boulder County AIDS Project, Out Boulder County, the Colorado LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce, PFLAG Boulder County, and the It Gets Better campaign. In order to raise community awareness of issues surrounding homelessness and housing insecurity, DGMC committed to a yearlong Street Requiem Project in Denver, Colorado Springs, and Fort Collins. In 2018, they began pioneering an educational outreach program to nurture safe learning environments and support anti-bullying efforts in Colorado schools.
During its 40th anniversary season, DGMC collaborated with world-renowned Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, a first for both organizations. Aurora’s Rangeview High School Choir joined DGMC for the Colorado premiere of “The Seven Last Words of the Unarmed,” a powerful multi-movement piece inspired by the last words of seven unarmed black men. DGMC commissioned and premiered a new 70 minute musical “Unbreakable” by Broadway Composer Andrew Lippa spanning 120 years of LGBTQ+ history in the United States.
DGMC’s future is full of endless possibilities as their mission statement, “building community through music,” drives their imaginative motivation for success!
