Colorado Symphony Announces Joshua Bell Concert Program
Colorado Symphony donors have opportunity to enjoy exclusive opening night dinner, chance to meet Joshua Bell and Peter Oundjian
The Colorado Symphony opens its magnificent 2011/12 season on Sunday, September 18 with a One Night Only concert featuring superstar violinist Joshua Bell performing Bruch's exquisite Violin Concerto No. 1. The classical music superstar joins the Colorado Symphony in a spectacular evening that also features Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio Espagnol, Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet and Khachaturian’s Waltz from the Incidental Music to Lermontov’s Masquerade Adagio of Spartacus and Phrygia from Spartacus. Conducted by Colorado favorite Peter Oundjian, this promises to be an opening night that music lovers will be talking about for years to come. Remaining tickets currently start at $110.
Bell, who was recently appointed music director of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, can be seen in a limited number of U.S. concerts this fall before departing for Europe in mid-October for concerts with the Munchner Philharmoniker in Munich and Berlin. Most recently, he announced that his newest CD, titled French Impressions and featuring the music of Franck, Ravel and Saint- Saëns, will be released on January 10, 2012.
Colorado Symphony donors at the $2,000 level and higher also have the exclusive opportunity to meet Bell and Oundjian at a VIP event following the concert. These generous Colorado Symphony supporters will enjoy pre-concert cocktails and dinner at Kevin Taylor's at the Opera House. Following the concert, they have the chance to meet the illustrious guest artists at a post-concert champagne reception at Limelight.
