Why some of our very own think you should see this performance!

Claude Sim – Associate Concertmaster
"The King of Pop spoke for himself through his music. Going through the classic recordings of MJ, I still get goosebumps listening to those phenomenal and instantly identifiable hits. Brent Havens always brings a great show to Colorado, and this one will be truly funky."

Jason Lichtenwalter – English Horn and Oboe
"When Thriller came out, the hysteria was as feverish as the Broncos winning Super Bowl 50. I'm looking forward to reliving my elementary and junior-high years through all of the chart-topping tunes on this concert."
