Boulder Philharmonic: Nature & Music

Mar 25, 2017

The Boulder Phil encores nature-themed favorites from recent seasons along with a world premiere by “composer-adventurer” Stephen Lias inspired by our own Rocky Mountain National Park and choreographed to nature photography from the park. Jeff Midkiff’s mandolin concerto evokes the Appalachians with hues of bluegrass and Americana. Prairie dogs star in the cinematic Ghosts of the Grasslands, and Copland’s iconic Appalachian Spring is brought to life in unforgettable fashion by Frequent Flyers Aerial Dance ensemble.

This concert will also be performed on March 28 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC - part of the SHIFT Festival of American Orchestras.
