Elephant Revival joins Colorado Symphony in 2016/17 Fall Season
Saturday, November 26th 2016
At Boettcher Concert Hall

June 14, 2016 – DENVER, CO – 2016 is proving to be a dream year for the Nederland quintet, Elephant Revival. The ensemble headlined their first show at Red Rocks earlier this spring and are now proud to announce their first performance at Boettcher Concert Hall with the Colorado Symphony on Saturday, November 26th.

The music of Elephant Revival is that of connection and the message of their new album, 
Petals, is not how life is about loss, but rather how much life there is in loss, how much potency, how much love. But this is not an album about despair or darkness; it’s a thanksgiving and a prayer for what endures and returns.

NPR describes Elephant Revival as a group that “pulls together so many elements of American music that summing up its sound in just a few words is bound to prove inadequate.” Although not bound to any one genre, the band maintains its roots in American, gypsy and Celtic songcraft, and has achieved a compositional maturity that, in moments, can evoke the modern classical ensemble.

The Colorado Symphony proudly continues pushing the envelope of blending genres and incorporating local Colorado artists (including The Lumineers, DeVotchKa, and Gregory Alan Isakov) to bring together another unique, spellbinding concert experience for you to enjoy.

Tickets on sale for the general public this Friday, June 17 at 10 am at or by phone at 303.623.7876.
