Itzhak Perlman, Jorge Federico Osorio, Andrew Grams, Juanjo Mena and Pink Martini among artists headlining April concerts
April at the Colorado Symphony features an array of concert events for all music lovers, including the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the virtuosity of violinist Itzhak Perlman in Denver. April opens with Classical Top 40, the latest installment in the Colorado Symphony's popular Inside the Score series featuring works by Ravel, Bach, Mozart, Wagner, Pachelbel and much more. The excitement continues with Carmina Burana – one of the most undeniably riveting and wildly popular choral masterworks in the repertoire. Then, the inimitably glamorous Pink Martini brings its unique blend of elegant cocktail-hour fusion – crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop – to the Colorado Symphony Pops Series.
April continues with conductor Juanjo Mena and pianist Jorge Federico Osorio – two luminaries of the Spanish repertoire featured in a truly beautiful concert program. Then, resident conductor Scott O'Neil and associate concertmaster Claude Sim unite for the "heart's jewel" of violin concertos – the Mendelssohn. Easter weekend features Wagner's Prelude and Good Friday Spell from Parsifal, with the sparkling concert centerpiece of Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream. April at the Colorado Symphony concludes with Itzhak Perlman in concert, an event that promises to bring audiences to their feet.
