From DENVER PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA:
After a long, hard, weird year, we’re buzzing back into action. Our friends at Stanley Marketplace have invited us to return for another concert series in The Field at Stanley, May 26 & 27. DPO Music Director Lawrence Golan leaps back onto the podium to conduct four works budding with joy and optimism!
First up is Gioachino Rossini’s playful and cartoonish overture to The Barber of Seville. Then, emerging from the loneliness of a dark cave into the bright light of day, Felix Mendelssohn’s lyrical Hebrides couldn’t be a more apt metaphor as we collectively rise from the trauma of the pandemic. Elegía Andina by composer (and beekeeper!) Gabriela Lena Frank will transport you on a musical, Peruvian adventure. And finally, Ludwig van Beethoven’s magnificent seventh symphony offers us a glimpse into his continued positivity despite his increasing hearing loss.
7:00-8:15 pm, no intermission.
Lawrence Golan, conductor
Rossini: The Barber of Seville Overture
