The Colorado Symphony continues to entice music lovers by partnering with musicians who aren't necessarily steeped in the classics but who have a sound that pairs magically with violins and harps and flutes. And it's just announced its newest partnership. On November 10, 2018, the Symphony will play a concert with the funk masters in Lettuce.

Colorado Symphony principal trombonist John Sipher surprised us with a piece he composed for trombone and looping pedal. Sipher plays a few bars on his instrument, lets the loop pedal record it and play it back, and then adds more intricate layers over the original pattern. The music includes unusual beatboxing and a wall of gorgeous harmonies in the piece's surprisingly tender later passages.

Remember the boy band Hanson? Its members, who got their start in the early ’90s, aren't boys anymore. And their most recent partnerships with orchestras nationwide prove it. Hanson toured the world last year to mark its 25th anniversary; this year, to celebrate 26, the group is presenting the Hanson String Theory and sharing stages with orchestras around the country, including the Colorado Symphony. The program is being billed as "a musical manifesto with new and career-spanning works" from the band.
