Colorado takes a great deal of pride in their symphony. The symphony organizers have gone to a great deal of trouble to make sure that the programs that the symphony plays have something that everyone is going to enjoy. Playing pieces that range from the very modern, to pieces arranged by Mozart and Beethoven, the symphony has done an excellent job of showing that it is very versatile. It is not at all unusual for a person who has never heard a live performance, to be surprised the first time they hear the Colorado symphony perform. The symphony occasional provides musical background for famous vocal groups, including the well-known band, Chicago.
In addition to wanting to make sure that everyone who attends their performances is treated to a style of music that they’ll enjoy, the symphony also tries to make it possible for everyone to enjoy their performances. In an attempt to do this, students can purchase tickets for the very low price of $5. Granted the seats are in the nosebleed section, but the sound is still spectacular, and the tickets make for a very affordable and romantic date.
The Colorado Symphony was first created in 1989. Sadly its days may be limited. The down turn of the economy means that the Symphony is struggling to find the funding it needs in order to continue to put on memorable shows. If things do not change and the symphony is not able to fill its crofters, it will be forced to close. People throughout the state continue to rally around the symphony, doing everything possible to raise the money needed to keep the music playing for years to come.
