Among the many celebrated works of Ludwig van Beethoven, the Missa Solemnis is perhaps his most mysterious. The composer himself regarded it as his greatest composition, a culmination of his life-long desire to join music and philosophy, while the French composer, theorist, and teacher Vincent d’Indy wrote, “We stand in the presence of one of the greatest masterworks in the realm of music.” This is a true companion piece to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony that sheds light on Beethoven's spiritual worldview.

Our Greatest Opportunity Is You

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

Nick Dobreff 0 1234

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.
