To commemorate Beethoven’s 250th birthday, the Colorado Symphony will celebrate his unmatched brilliance with a series of musical performances in Boettcher Concert Hall and across Colorado throughout 2020, bringing the full orchestra and chamber ensembles to underserved communities in the state where access to live symphonic music is often difficult or impossible to realize. The yearlong initiative will bring Beethoven's music to over 100,000 Colorado residents throughout the state.

Someone Told Me It's All Happening At The Zoo

The Colorado Symphony had the recent opportunity to spend a day at Denver Zoo, serenading the animals and curious Zoo patrons alike. This collaboration between the Colorado Symphony and Denver Zoo illustrates a harmonious partnership forged by a shared sense of community, and stands as a striking example of how two seemingly different cultural organizations can collaborate to do something fun, positive, and memorable.

Our Greatest Opportunity Is You

The Colorado Symphony is creating a sustainable future for symphonic music in Colorado

Nick Dobreff 0 545

For nearly 100 years, the Colorado Symphony has been an iconic paragon within Colorado’s performing arts community. As the only resident, full-time, professional orchestra in the state, it has served as a vital linchpin of the cultural performing arts infrastructure of Colorado. However, with operating costs increasing each year, it’s imperative that the organization builds a more substantial endowment that will serve as a reliable source of income year after year. In 2015, the Colorado Symphony received a challenge grant commitment of $25 million from the Avenir Foundation, which agreed to match all donations dollar-for-dollar made by June 30, 2020 up to the $25 million threshold. Several additional opportunities remain, and we need your help.

The Colorado Symphony believes in the power of collaborating with other Denver Arts organizations to provide programming that impacts a wider and more diverse range of patrons than ever before. One of the most impactful of those collaborations is with the Mexican Cultural Center who've partnered annually on such audience-favorite concerts as Latin Beats: Sonido de las Americas and México en el Corazón.

Colorado Symphony donors impact the community in a number of ways and one example is the Community Ticketing Initiative, a program that provides free Colorado Symphony tickets to underserved families, children, and individuals who might not otherwise have the means to attend a concert. This past season, community members claimed more than 6100 tickets representing more than $344,000 in donor underwriting from numerous supporters.
