Founded in 2015 by Co-Artistic Directors Christopher Maunu and Nathan Payant, Anima Chamber Ensemble is an elite 17-voice ensemble comprised of professional musicians based in the Denver metro area. Anima specializes in performing diverse choral repertoire ranging from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary works of the 21st century.

The performances offered by Anima have been described as “refreshing, flawless, passionate and entertaining.” They resonate with not only adults from all walks of life, but are also a “hit” with a younger generation of choral artists.
