The Colorado Symphony is turning over the keys to artists from Denver’s thriving local music scene on May 28 at 7:30 pm for an original performance featuring new music! 

Colorado artists Ian Cooke, Land Lines and Megan Burtt will perform individual sets with musicians from the Colorado Symphony, each with a unique style, sound and symphonic approach. An active collaboration between the guest musicians and the symphony will yield original orchestral arrangements of each artist’s music for a full complement of string players.

Ian Cooke is described as “one of the most talented living songwriters and performers” by Westword’s Tom Murphy. Though most often referred to as “unique” and “endearing,” it has been well-documented for the past decade that Cooke is much more: a creative force to be reckoned with.

Land Lines is an impossible decade, some gap in history where the tines of early electric pianos shimmer in echo chambers, baroque cellos thrum minor chords, and modern percussive rhythms build with surgical precision, all culminating in sparing, angular pop melodies that find new creative spaces in an otherwise overpopulated musical landscape.

What distinguishes Megan Burtt is her emotional insight and soulful delivery. A Colorado-born songwriter and national touring artist, she weaves elements of pop, folk, jazz, and groove to yield a sound that is uniquely hers. After completing her formal music education, Burtt has continued to hone her craft around the world, inspired by her time in the Mississippi delta, living and entertaining in Vietnam, and an annual East Coast prison tour.
