Diamond’s Romeo and Juliet offers a musical interpretation on Shakespeare’s seminal romantic work while Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story provides an updated 20th-century look at the classic Romeo and Juliet story. You won’t want to miss our special Valentine’s Day performance on February 14.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Colorado Symphony Presents: Yumi Hwang-Williams & Sara Parkinson <p>The program follows on Dazzle’s hosting David Amram in September. Sara and Yumi will play two works by David Amram and several familiar violin works.</p> <p>Sara Parkinson enjoys a varied career as pianist, conductor and vocal coach. She has served on the staff and faculties of University of Colorado at Boulder, Cornell College and Metropolitan State University of Denver. As a pianist, she has performed with the Colorado Music Festival Orchestra, Boulder Chamber Orchestra, Extasis, Colorado Ballet Orchestra, Colorado Symphony, and she is a founding member of Grande Orquesta Navarre. As conductor, she made her operatic conducting debut with Massenet’s Cendrillon and Mozart’s Così fan tutte as Music Director for Boulder Opera’s 2017-2018 season. Sara recently attended The Dallas Opera’s Hart Institute for Women Conductors, and she will cover conduct Eugene Onegin at CU-Boulder in February 2019. She has been a member of the Central City Opera Ensemble since 2012 and coaches singers regularly. Sara is currently Music Director at St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church in Boulder and Director of Operations for Denver’s MAS Eclectic Concerts.

A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, her exceptional musicianship has earned her a reputation as an artist who, in addition to her thoughtful and stylish interpretations of the classics, is known for her commitment to exploring and performing the works of contemporary composers. Featured in a Strings magazine cover article in 2008, she was described as a ‘Modern Prometheus’ who has ‘emerged as a fiery champion of contemporary classical music’. Her interpretations of works by Aaron Jay Kernis, Michael Daugherty and Christopher Rouse have earned unreserved approval from the composers as well as critical acclaim. She has performed Korean composer Isang Yun’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with the Basel Symphony Orchestra, Switzerland under the baton of Dennis Russell Davies who immediately invited her to play the concerto again with the Bruckner Orchester, in Linz, Austria in October 2009. She has also been the soloist in Thomas Adès’ violin concerto, Concentric Paths, at the Cabrillo Festival in Santa Cruz with Marin Alsop on the podium.</p> 1512 Curtis Streeet Denver, WY America/North_Dakota/Center

Beethoven Symphony No. 7 <p>Brett Mitchell, conductor<br />Mason Bates, electronica / composer<br />Joshua Roman, cello</p> <p>MASON BATES Auditorium for Chamber Orchestra &amp; Laptop<br />MASON BATES Cello Concerto<br />BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92</p> <p>Driving dance rhythms link this trio of works by Beethoven and Mason Bates. Brett Mitchell conducts Beethoven’s energetic Symphony No. 7, dubbed the ‘apotheosis of the dance’ by Wagner for the spinning, whirling motion at the heart of this constantly developing musical organism. The second movement &#8211; Allegretto &#8211; stands alone as a powerful, haunting piece of classical music and remains one of Beethoven’s most well known works. Joshua Roman makes his Colorado Symphony debut performing Mason Bates’ Cello Concerto written especially for Roman. Bates’ baroque thriller, Auditorium, haunts the orchestra with ghostly recordings of a baroque ensemble, making it essentially a work for two orchestras &#8211; one live, one dead.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 <p>Peter Oundjian, conductor<br />Stephen Hough, piano</p> <p>JOAN TOWER Made in America<br />SAINT-SAËNS Piano Concerto No. 5 in F major, Op. 103, “Egyptian”<br />TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74, “Pathétique”</p> <p>In the Russian context, Pathétique suggests ‘impassioned suffering’, an eerily suitable description for the psychological drama Tchaikovsky’s final symphony depicts. His death only nine days after the world premiere gives added weight to a defining work of the Romantic period. Returning guest conductor Peter Oundjian joins masterful pianist Stephen Hough, who brings his inspired styling to Saint-Saëns exotic “Egyptian” Piano Concerto No. 5, while the familiar tune to “America the Beautiful” resurfaces throughout Joan Tower’s GRAMMY Award®—Winning Made in America.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique <p>Brett Mitchell, conductor<br />Conrad Tao, piano</p> <p>MISSY MAZZOLI Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres)<br />RAVEL Piano Concerto in G major<br />BERLIOZ Symphonie fantastique, Op. 14</p> <p>Brett Mitchell conducts your Colorado Symphony in a contrasting program of works both old and new. Berlioz’s bombastic, boisterous Symphonie fantastique is one of the first to tell a complete story through pure orchestral music as he details his own personal pursuit of Harriet Smithson, the Shakespearean actress who later became his wife. Using a recurrent melodic theme to tie the five movements together, Berlioz foreshadows the Wagnerian Leitmotif in a programmatic work that shows the range of human emotions. Featured soloist Conrad Tao performs Ravel’s Piano Concerto, a colorful Gershwin-inspired work with American spirit and jazz flavors while Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) contains elements of Ravel’s impressionistic nature as it presents music in the shape of a solar system as a collection of rococo loops twist around each other within a larger orbit.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Danny Elfman Violin Concerto featuring Sandy Cameron <p>Christopher Dragon, conductor<br />Sandy Cameron, violin</p> <p>HERRMANN Suite from Psycho<br />RAVEL Mother Goose (complete ballet)<br />DANNY ELFMAN Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, "Eleven Eleven"</p> <p>Associate conductor Christopher Dragon leads your Colorado Symphony in a weekend celebration of film score composers and those who influenced them. Herrmann’s ingenious use of strings conveys a “black and white sound” on his suite from Psycho, which mirrors the black and white images of Hitchcock’s haunting cinematic thriller. Ravel, who heavily influenced future generations of film composers, originally wrote Mother Goose as a piano duet but later revised and expanded the original work into an orchestrated piece. The program is capped by the legendary Danny Elfman, who composed the scores for treasured films such as Batman, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Good Will Hunting. Brilliant soloist Sandy Cameron performs the Colorado premiere of Elfman’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, “Eleven Eleven,” a piece she helped debut in 2017.</p> <p> </p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Featuring the Colorado Symphony Chorus, Colorado Children’s Chorale, and a cast of soloists, Carmina Burana is a true spectacle and one of the most well known pieces of the 20th century, combining powerful rhythms and robust vocals in a dynamic conclusion to an unforgettable season. Adam Schoenberg’s American Symphony begins the program with a piece reminiscent of Copland and Bernstein as it reflects the hope of America’s potential.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
