This is a SOLD OUT event, so your ONLY chance to hear the amazing Yo-Yo Ma and the Colorado Symphony is to tune into Colorado Public Radio on December 2nd. The Colorado Symphony Orchestra and Colorado Public Radio are conducting an historic, one-time co-venture fundraising drive to support the Colorado Symphony—the major classical music and program provider for CPR. Our partner, Colorado Public Radio, is graciously conducting an on-air fundraising campaign, Bringing the Music to Life, on behalf of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. The on-air drive begins November 30 and culminates on December 2 with a live broadcast of the Orchestra's sold out performance featuring musical icon Yo-Yo Ma.
Julian Kuerti will conduct the Colorado Symphony Orchestra in a night of Dvořák, with In Nature’s Realm, Carnival Overture, Othello Overture and the Cello Concerto featuring Yo-Yo Ma. The program starts at 7:30pm on Wednesday, December 2nd.
CPR and the CSO ask all who care about music and music education for Colorado’s young people to help in Bringing the Music to Life through this special on-air fundraising campaign conducted on CPR stations KCFR and KVOD November 30 through December 2. Gifts will help sustains the CSO’s tradition of providing outstanding symphonic music and music education programs to our community.
