Colorado Symphony is back at Boettcher Hall with an astounding calendar. First up, guest conductor Peter Oundjain leads the orchestra with legendary pianist Emanuel Ax.

Following a season-long hiatus, the Colorado Symphony will resume full operation in September with additional concerts just added to its 2021-2022 calendar. Over 90 performances are scheduled at Boettcher Concert Hall, with an artist’s portfolio that includes GRAMMY-winning soloists, virtuosic instrumentals, and megastars familiar to Colorado audiences. The full season was announced August 9 and includes classics, Symphony Pops, Movie at the Symphony, holiday programs and much more.

On September 17, the Colorado Symphony returns with an all-masterworks premiere featuring Barber’s "Adagio for Strings" plus Mussorgksy’s "Pictures at an Exhibition" and Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto with guest artist Emanuel Ax. In October, resident conductor Christopher Dragon leads a program of Brahms, Mendelssohn and Mozart with violinist Simone Porter. Also decorating the season is the return of symphony conductor laureate, Marin Alsop, and a signature collaboration with multi-instrumentalists and Denver-based DeVotchKa. Individual tickets available September 1.
