Apex Contemporary Dance Theatre is a professional dance company dedicated to producing innovative dance concerts that entertain, engage and inspire. Co-founded by David Reuille and Heidi Nichter in 2008 and headquartered in Parker, the company also offers ongoing classes and educational outreach productions for schools in Colorado.

The Colorado Wind Ensemble’s mission is to provide opportunities for musicians to create, and audiences to experience, exceptional live performances of wind ensemble music. As the only wind ensemble in the Denver Metro area outside of academia, the Colorado Wind Ensemble performs music from all eras. The group is in its 29th season and is led by Conductor and Musical Director Matthew J. Roeder, DMA.

The Parker Chorale was formed in 2010 as a community group dedicated to fostering the arts and supporting music education in the Town of Parker and Douglas County. Lead by Paul Smith, Artistic Director and Conductor, this adult chorus is devoted to sharing the gift of song through music performance.

The Parker Symphony Orchestra, also known as the South Suburban Community Orchestra, was founded in 1994 and is led by Director René Knetch. The Orchestra provides opportunities for musical expression to many who would otherwise not have that chance.

Lone Tree Arts Center - This Arts Venue was the first in Douglas County and has recently gone into a partnership with the PACE Center to form the South Metro Childrens Theater Group. The Arts Center will present critically-acclaimed national performing artists and will launch new relationships with an impressive group of Colorado’s professional arts companies by inviting them to perform at the Lone Tree Arts Center, the first publicly financed professional arts facility in the South Metro Denver Area.

Show up early to get the best seats, bring your own food, blankets, chairs and snacks or support the various fundraisers each week by purchasing your popcorn, pop and candy for a freakishly inexpensive rate of a buck a piece.
