Canadian Conductor to lead the Colorado Symphony this weekend

After a successful Colorado Public Radio fund raising drive which netted the orchestra over $625,000, the Colorado Symphony returns to Boettcher concert hall with a program featuring classical heavyweight composers.

Canadian born Conductor Julian Kuerti leads the Colorado Symphony in three works this evening. The opening piece of the concert is Richard Strauss's tone poem Don Juan. The second piece on the program features the CSO's own principal Hornist Michael Thornton performing the Mozart  Fourth Horn Concerto. Rounding out the performance will be Beethoven's fourth Symphony.

Julian Kuerti is the Associate Conductor of the Boston Symphony orchestra. This will be his second appearance with the orchestra, the first being a special one time performance last Wednesday night with Yo-Yo Ma.

Michael Thornton has been with the Colorado Symphony since 1997 and teaches horn at the University of Colorado.

Performances are tonight and tommorrow, both begin at 7:30 PM at Boettcher concert hall.

For tickets visit or call the box office (303) 623-7876.
