2017-18 Season

The Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2017-2018 season is packed with a creative combination of world-renowned artists, regional collaborations, and performances of two works by major American composers co-commissioned by the Boulder Phil.

“I’m excited to celebrate the Boulder Phil’s 60th anniversary in a community that’s known for its creativity and innovation. Featuring dynamic artists, championing accessible new music while performing some of the greatest orchestral works in the repertory, and collaborating with a wide variety of organizations, has become a successful formula for our season programming.” ~Music Director Michael Butterman
