The Minnesota Boychoir’s touring ensemble is spending next week performing in Colorado.

Founded in 1962 and based in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, the group focuses on developing the vocal talents of boys ages 7 to 18. It also focuses on helping them develop character and self-confidence.

The ensemble performs regularly in the Twin Cities area and has also toured throughout the U.S. and internationally, including Australia and Italy. The musicians have performed with the Minnesota Orchestra and Baltimore Symphony, and on “A Prairie Home Companion.”

Next week’s Colorado performances:

  • 7:30 p.m. Monday at Montview Congregational Church, 1980 Dahlia St., Denver. The concert is free, though donations are welcome.
  • 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 9203 S. University Blvd., Highlands Ranch.
  • 8 p.m. Friday at First Congregational Church, 20 E. St. Vrain St., Colorado Springs.
