Season Overview

Oundjian returns to celebrate the orchestra’s Classics opening weekend with a powerhouse program including Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue featuring piano superstar Jon Kimura Parker.

Our Movie at the Symphony series continues and the orchestra will perform the scores of Disney’s Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Home Alone, Disney’s Frozen™, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone™. The winter is teeming with Holiday favorites like A Colorado Christmas, Elf™ in Concert, A Night in Vienna, the return of audience-favorite Too Hot to Handel, and we’ll pay tribute to ABBA.

The Colorado Symphony and I are thrilled to present a captivating season with music from a diverse and talented roster of composers, featuring a blend of old and new, all performed by a collection of some of the finest musicians in the world.

Peter Oundjian, Principal Conductor

At the start of the new year, we’ll host a mini festival we’re calling Mozart and Now, reimagining the traditional concert weekend experience with three unique performances contrasting the music of Mozart with pieces from four of today’s brightest composers. Peter Oundjian will also conduct your Colorado Symphony Chorus and two vocal soloists in A German Requiem by Brahms, one of the most stunning pieces ever composed for chorus and orchestra.

Our last two Classics performances are an orchestral-only presentation of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and Stravinsky’s groundbreaking The Rite of Spring with Brahms’ Violin Concerto performed by stellar violinist Augustin Hadelich. Additional highlights of the season include Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, Beethoven’s Third Symphony “Eroica”, a Classics weekend featuring mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile, and a tribute to John Williams.

And, debuting this season is an exciting new creation called the Imagination Artist Series, featuring collaborations with Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, Broadway’s Mary-Mitchell Campbell, and Colorado’s own Nathaniel Rateliff.

Throughout our 2022/23 Season, we’ll be encouraging audiences to join us in imagining the possibilities of what live, symphonic music can be.
