Colorado Symphony Chorus shines this weekend with the Colorado Symphony

This weekend the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and the Colorado Symphony Chorus team up for three performances. The Program includes one very famous work and one that is very new to the world of orchestral repetoire.

The first work entitled "On the Transmigration of souls" was commissioned by Composer John Adams after the September 11th terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania. The work is a reflection on the lives and memories of those who perished during the attacks. The work is scored for Orchestra, Choir, Childrens Choir and also has recorded sounds. The piece is very somber and some may find it a little disturbing, however it has an important message that we should never forget the memory of those who left us on that day.

During the Friday night performance (May 28th), John Adams will be in attendance at the performance.

The second work, Symphony No. 9 by Beethoven is perhaps the composers most famous work. The performance again features the magnificant Colorado Symphony Chorus. The concert will be the second to last set of performances for outgoing Music Director Jeffrey Kahane.

The performances begin this Friday May 28th at 7:30 PM.

Repeat performances are Saturday May 29th at 7:30 PM and May 30th at 2:30PM.
