The Boulder Phil and the City of Boulder Open Space & Mountain Parks (OSMP) have created an ongoing collaboration to connect community members with the natural world through music. This partnership includes guided musical hikes designed to complement specific works to be performed by the Boulder Phil. The hikes are free and open to the public.
The Boulder Phil’s Infinite Space concerts (Oct. 13 & 14) showcase Gustav Holst’s glorious work The Planets. Take a pre-concert tour of the solar system through a large telescope with City of Boulder Open Space naturalist Dave Sutherland while sampling excerpts from this stirring music. After seeing the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, the polar caps of Mars, and distant Uranus and Neptune, you will be fully prepared to enjoy the concert like an expert! Meet at Boulder Valley Ranch trailhead. Follow this link for a map:
PLEASE NOTE: Telescope viewing is weather-dependent: if there is a 50% cloud cover or more at the time the program starts, it will be canceled and may be rescheduled for another night at short notice. You can find the latest updates at www.NatureHikes.org.
