The musicians that make up the Colorado Symphony can’t perform live. They, like most people in Colorado, are staying home to slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Without the ability to entertain people at the Boettcher Concert Hall, the symphony came up with a creative way to perform.
“We thought, what could we do to show the community that the music is going to continue,” said Anthony Pierce, Chief Artistic Officer. “We’re committed to being back. We’re committed to making sure people have some joy to experience also. So, we thought, what better than Beethoven 9, the Ode to Joy.”
