I’m 25 years old and was never exposed to classical music until last year when a friend invited me to a Boulder Symphony concert for my birthday. Blown. Away. Not only did I hear a fantastic orchestra but I learned so much from the conductor about the pieces played but what led the composer to undertake the composition. I never knew the richness of this genre of music. I’ll be back..with friends.
Bravo! Not only do I enjoy the symphonic concerts but last year’s Pop Concert “A John Denver Tribute” brought back wonderful memories of Denver’s incredible melodies, and what it meant to us at that time.
Boulder Symphony is very fortunate, indeed, to have Devin Patrick Hughes as our Conductor and Music Director. Along with Devin’s numerous accomplishments, Devin was selected as one of 12 young conductors, worldwide, to compete in the Toscanini International Conducting Competition in Italy. This is a very prestigious honor for this young maestro and for Boulder Symphony alike.
