“Resident Conductor Christopher Dragon lends his patented zeal to this program highlighted by Elgar’s Enigma Variations, wistfully portraying a host of the composer’s friends, family, and acquaintances in an emotional journey through tenderness, bluster, and melancholy. Tubin’s Concerto for Double Bass features your Colorado Symphony’s own Principal Bass Steve Metcalf in a starring role while Rossini’s Overture from William Tell highlights some of the most recognizable musical passages of all time, including the thunderous finale which is sure to have you on the edge of your seat.”

“In addition, the Bringing Music to Life Instrument Drive will be in the lobby to accept your gently used band or orchestra instrument. They’ll repair your instrument and award it to a deserving, underfunded school music program in Colorado.” www.bringingmusictolife.org/
