This July, the Colorado Symphony presents a remarkable array of classical masterpieces and new orchestral collaborations, including three riveting concerts under the stars at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Highlights at Red Rocks include the symphonic debut of multiple Grammy® Awardwinning singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan, the return of Broadway powerhouse Idina Menzel of Wicked fame, and an unforgettable night with pop/rock legends Chicago.
“The Colorado Symphony is thrilled to partner with Sarah McLachlan in her first-ever symphony concert and we can’t imagine a better place for this momentous debut than under the stars at Red Rocks,” said James W. Palermo, President & CEO, Colorado Symphony. “In programming the Colorado Symphony’s summer series, we endeavored to offer a rich variety of concert experiences that will engage new audiences and continue to inspire our most dedicated patrons. The series will accomplish exactly that, while making summer 2011 an extraordinary time for live symphonic music in Colorado.”
At Summer Seasonings at Boettcher Concert Hall presented by PCL Construction, concertgoers will enjoy al fresco dining and the beauty of a summer’s eve before making the short trip indoors to their concert seats. Summer Seasonings features an evening of Russian Masterpieces and the return of Best of Beethoven, as well as a John Williams Spectacular featuring music from movies such as Harry Potter and Star Wars. Plus, music lovers won’t want to miss Mozart Under Moonlight and a light classics tribute to legendary Boston Pops conductor Arthur Fiedler at CenterFest at the Arvada Center.
