Boulder Phil

March 21/22 Concerts Suspended due to Covid-19

We regret to report that the Boulder Phil will be unable to proceed with concerts scheduled for March 21 at Macky Auditorium and March 22 at Pinnacle Performing Arts Center. CU announced today the suspension of all campus classes and gatherings, and we are supporting public health and safety by suspending our concerts until the virus threat has passed. We hope these preventative measures will be effective as our community does its part to protect our citizens. 

We view this change as a postponement, and we will reschedule the concert if at all possible. We will keep you informed of developments as we have information.

For all ticket holders, your tickets is valid for a rescheduled performance of this program, or for exchange to a future concert. If you prefer you may donate the value of your ticket to the Phil, or request a refund, by calling the box office, 303-449-1343 starting Monday, March 16.

We appreciate your support and patronage, and we are eager to get back to sharing great music with you soon! In the meantime, we wish you all good health, and we support our community in ending the spread of coronavirus quickly.

Aimee Heckel at TravelBoulder wrote a great article about Boulder Phil on TravelBoulder.com

Here is a brief overview and a link to the full article on their website.

Our town is lucky to be home to a rare music treat: our very own professional symphony orchestra.

The Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra is known for its high quality, innovation and artistic collaborations. Around the holidays, it’s known as the live soundtrack to the Boulder Ballet’s popular “Nutcracker” shows.

But the “Boulder Phil” offers so much more.

It has its own full concert season that often features some of the top names in classical music. You can expect the unexpected: aerialists and circus performers incorporated into the performance, classical music hikes, science and nature components. In fact, the Boulder Phil has partnered with at least 45 other local groups over the years. Its creative approaches often give the Boulder Phil a wider audience reach and bring orchestral music to people who think they might not otherwise enjoy it, or who might not otherwise have exposure to it.
