Keith joined the Colorado Children’s Chorale Board of Trustees this season and truly enjoys working with such an extraordinary group of talented people who are dedicated to helping the Chorale meet its mission of advancing the arts and providing incredible opportunities for so many children in our community.
Keith, his wife Lenora, and their kids Lillian (11), Samuel (9) and Jeremy (4) live in Boulder. They have known the Chorale for many years, as both Lenora and her younger brother grew up in Lakewood and sang with the Chorale (when it was directed by Duain Wolfe), They have fond memories of their singing experiences. At the same time, Lenora’s father, Mitchell, was singing with the Evergreen Chorale, which also was directed by Mr. Wolfe. For the last 3 years, Lillian has been singing with the Prep, Apprentice and Concert Choirs, and has just started as a new member of the Tour Choir.
Music was an important part of Keith’s life growing up too, playing violin in the Kansas City Youth Symphony for many years. He played the bass guitar in numerous bands from high school through law school. He also plays the saxophone and guitar (mostly when no one else is around).
Keith attended Pomona College in Southern California and law school at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. After practicing in Chicago for 3 years, he and Lenora returned to Colorado, where he joined and is now a partner at Cooley LLP. He leads the Colorado office’s Technology Transactions Group, focusing on transactions involving the acquisition, development and commercialization of technology. His clients include multinational public companies and start-ups financed by venture capital and private equity firms in the renewable energy, social media, wireless communications, software, services and hardware industries.
Keith also does pro bono work for the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center (RMCLC), serving as a guardian ad litem for children in cases involving domestic violence. This summer, he is riding the Triple Bypass (a 1-day, 120 mile ride that goes over 3 passes from Evergreen to Avon) to raise money to support the efforts of the RMCLC.
Keith and his family love spending time hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, camping and exploring the Rocky Mountains. They also enjoy road trips, and have had numerous adventures in many of our beautiful national parks.
Keith’s family is excited and honored to be able to continue being part of the Chorale’s growth and positive impact on so many children and communities.
