Welcome to the Boulder Phil’s 2021-22 Season!

Our 2021-22 Season starts off in October with two limited-capacity events at Mountain View United Methodist Church in Boulder, before our beloved holiday tradition, The Nutcracker, presented in collaboration with Boulder Ballet at Macky Auditorium in November. Our subscription series returns to Macky in January 2022 with a Gershwin celebration featuring the renowned Marcus Roberts Trio and their spellbinding, toe-tapping take on his Concerto in F. The season is packed with audience favorites by Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Elgar, Rimsky-Korsakov and Stravinsky, along with fresh new discoveries from Mason Bates, Anna Clyne, Cindy McTee and a world premiere violin concerto from jazz legend Billy Childs.

We’re thrilled to be joined by a roster of world-class guests like violinist Rachel Barton Pine, pianist Terrence Wilson and Boulder’s own GRAMMY®-winning violist, Richard O’Neill. And we close our season with the return of ukulele sensation, Jake Shimabukuro!  “Boulder touches” also abound, including concertmaster Charles Wetherbee playing the evocative Butterfly Lovers Concerto along with spectacular aerial choreography from Frequent Flyers® Aerial Dance, and the premiere of two fascinating works of video art commissioned by the Phil to deepen and enhance the experience of Circuits and Mysterious Mountain.

5- or 6- concert subscriptions can be ordered online now. Renewal packages will be mailed out this week. Single tickets go on sale in early September. Please call the Boulder Phil office at 303.449.1343 with any questions.
