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.
Phoenix, 12, made his orchestral debut with the Boulder Symphony last season with the Bruch Concerto in G minor, and is very pleased to be returning again this season. He is the recipient of a full scholarship from the Starling Foundation to attend the prestigious Meadowmount School of Music for the past 2 years.
