Denver Brass: Rhapsody in Brass | Jan 12

Jan 9, 2019

The year was 1924. The setting was a train from New York to Boston, and the composer was George Gershwin. It was here he found inspiration for his famed piece, Rhapsody in Blue, and placed his stamp on American musical history. Of his own work he wrote, "I heard it as a sort of musical kaleidoscope of America, of our vast melting pot, of our unduplicated national pep, of our metropolitan madness." Join us at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House as we welcome New York pianist Steven Mayer and the acclaimed Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble.

The Brass of Christmas Past | Dec 15 & 16

Dec 8, 2018

Snow was falling gently. Dinner was just cleared from the table when there was a sharp knock at the door. Upon opening, we were greeted by a jubilant chorus of Christmas carolers. The warmth and joy in their song melted away the cold wind and the harshness the winter had brought. The snow angels children make remind me of the footprints left behind by those carolers in the freshly fallen snow, so many years ago. Selections include a variety of your favorite Christmas carols and traditional songs. Specific pieces to be announced soon!
