DENVER (CBS4) – Coming up in the new 2013-14 season for the Colorado Symphony, there will be plenty to enjoy in the Masterworks Series, including at least six visits from Artistic Advisor Andrew Litton, who brings a rare energy to the conductor’s baton.
The Pops Series will include even more Symphony at the Movies nights, with the CSO providing the musical soundtrack (LIVE) to great films like “Frankenstein” and “The Bride of Frankenstein,” “Singin’ in the Rain” and “Disney’s Fantasia.”
Plus, in an effort to reach out to those who love different musical forms, there will be a new Friday night concert series at the Paramount Theater where the Symphony will be joined by a rock and roll band to present the music of “Tommy” at one show, The Beatles at another and the music of Woodstock at a third.
The Symphony is also putting a new focus on the Family series, with shows featuring Jack Hanna and his animals (Who in the strings section will volunteer to be the python stand for Act One?) and well as many other programs to capture the hearts of music lovers from 8 to 80.
And don’t forget the annual holiday shows. Favorites will return including A Colorado Christmas and Too Hot to Handel, but will be joined this year by a Broadway Christmas Show featuring Tony Award Winner Brian Stokes Mitchell.
Single tickets won’t go on sale until August, but you can buy subscription packages now. (Be Aware! Certain shows like the Rock series and some of the Family Series, may sell out before single tickets go on sale!)
They Colorado Symphony has a number of subscription packages at a variety of price points so you can get the shows you want at the price you can afford. This is a real effort on the part of the symphony to make everything available to as many folks in Colorado as possible.
