The Colorado Symphony is pleased to announce programming for the 2014/15 season, which opens Friday, September 18 at Boettcher Concert Hall.
The Colorado Symphony’s 2014/15 season represents a richly diverse spectrum of symphonic music, from classical to contemporary. Under the guidance of Music Director Andrew Litton, the line-up includes appearances by some of symphonic music’s most revered artists, including conductors Marin Alsop and Pinchas Zukerman, violinists Gil Shaham and Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and pianists Olga Kern, Natasha Paremski and Yefim Bronfman.
“Musically speaking, there’s nothing our incredible orchestra can’t do,” says Andrew Litton, who conducts eight Masterworks programs in the coming season. “We’re so excited about the programs, star performers, variety and quality of concerts next season. I have invited some of my oldest and closest friends to come and play with us. They also happen to be some of the greatest performers in the world today.”
As the leading orchestra in the Rocky Mountain West, the Colorado Symphony curates programming that reflects both excellence and creative innovation. With more than fifty programs, the 2014/15 season honors the diverse aptitudes and appetites of Colorado audiences, spanning everything from Beethoven and Bobby McFerrin to Broadway show tunes and soaring, choral classics. Programs will showcase works by renowned as well as emerging composers. There is even a new “Geek Package,” which kicks off with a second symphonic tribute to Comic Con.
“The Colorado Symphony is everyone’s orchestra, and we’re committed to serving the community by performing a variety of different styles,” says Anthony Pierce, Vice President of Artistic Administration for the Colorado Symphony. “Our ensemble has a unique and special ability to play all kinds of music, across genres and eras of history. It’s part of our tradition to be nimble and flexible. And it’s part of what makes the Colorado Symphony so exciting.
