Colorado Symphony Plays "Amazing Grace" at Denver Botanic Gardens

Even as Colorado slowly reopens, COVID-19 continues to loom over the state. In order to mark this moment, celebrate music, and reach for a little grace, the Colorado Symphony teamed up with Denver Botanic Gardens on Make Music Day, June 21, for a physically distanced alphorn duet of "Amazing Grace." The song was played by principal horn player Michael Thornton and Matthew Eckenhoff in the still-closed Mordecai Children's Garden. The alphorn, a wooden horn from the Swiss Alps that's around fourteen feet long, gave the musicians the chance to play six feet apart while allowing their instruments to be side by side. The instruments were originally used to communicate across mountains.

Whether it is performing at a Rockies baseball game or a Broncos football game, composing original music for the state government or putting on a small concert at a brewery, the Colorado Symphony is uniquely Colorado. The onset of COVID-19 has prevented the orchestra from performing together or in front of live audiences for the time being. But they're committed to #PlayOn through virtual concerts

"How can somebody who relies on hearing to do what they do, lose their hearing and still have the wherewithal and emotional need to continue creating, even though he knew he would never be able to hear any of these works? That, to me, is kind of incomprehensible." Colorado Symphony Music Director Brett Mitchell chats with CPR Classical host David Ginder about the mystery of Beethoven.
