Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5


Join guest conductor Peter Oundjian in a revival of Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable Fifth Symphony. As intensely dramatic as any of Tchaikovsky’s other major works, the Fifth belies the composer’s fragile mental state in a work that portrays a triumphant struggle against fate. Rising star Steven Banks, who captured First Prize at the 2019 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, makes his Colorado Symphony debut on John Adams’ Saxophone Concerto, offering rich textures and a jazzy flair in a work demanding extraordinary skill from the soloist. Mozart’s genius is on full display in his ever-popular overture from The Marriage of Figaro,  a lively and exuberant opener that is pure joy for musicians and audiences alike.

Instrument Drive – Give the Joy of Music Making

We're partnering once again with Bringing Music To Life to give children throughout Colorado access to the life-changing experience of music making. Please bring any gently used band or orchestra instrument to the donation table in the Boettcher Concert Hall lobby before Elgar Enigma Variations (DEC 3-5), A Colorado Christmas (DEC 10-12), or Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 (JAN 21-23). If needed, your instrument will be repaired and awarded to a deserving, underfunded school music program in Colorado. Learn More >>
