The 2018 Colorado Symphony Ball was an unforgettable party!

Renowned pianist Natasha Paremski took the stage with your Colorado Symphony and wowed guests with a rousing performance of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. The evening concluded with The Merger joining your Colorado Symphony for a Rock and Roll performance that shook the roof off of The Fillmore Auditorium.

The prestigious Margaret Phipps Award was presented to United Airlines, longtime supporters of the Colorado Symphony. A big thank you to our generous presenting sponsor Arrow Electronics and to all of our 2018 Symphony Ball table sponsors and donors who bought tickets, supported the live and silent auctions, and gave through our paddle raiser!
