Ted Trask has been a member of the Board of Trustees of the Colorado Children’s Chorale since 2009, and currently serves as a member of its Executive Committee. Ted was first introduced to the Chorale in the 1980’s when his family moved to Denver from Connecticut, and his mother Melissa became involved with organization, as a volunteer and Trustee. His parents’ involvement grew over the years, and their passion was fueled, despite never having a child participate in the Chorale. The Chorale continues to be a family affair for the Trasks, with Ted’s father Fritz, having served as Board President, his wife Lisa having chaired the Beach Ball event in 2009, and two sons who have been members of the Chorale.
Despite having limited musical abilities, and no history of participation in any choral setting, Ted finds it easy to be passionate about the Chorale, and its mission. “When you see the faces of the kids, from all of the various choirs as they perform, you can just see the positive impact that the Chorale experience is having on them. The confidence and skills they are building via the Chorale will serve them well in so many future endeavors, both musical and not.” Ted and his family also take additional pleasure from Chorale concerts these days, as two of his sons have participated, with his middle son Charley, now a member of Concert Choir. “As great as it has been to see the Chorale perform over the years, it is especially fun to see one extra-special smiling face on stage, and to hear from an “insiders” perspective what it means to be a member of the Colorado Children’s Chorale.”
Ted is a Senior Vice President with Vectra Bank Colorado, where he focuses specifically on commercial real estate project finance. His family consists of wife Lisa, and three boys, Quinn, Charley, and Henry. The Trasks live in Highlands Ranch, and in their spare time, when not hauling their boys to multiple activities, they love to be in the mountains, where they ski, ride bikes, play golf, and generally decompress from life in Denver.
