Come As You Are!

Back in 1964 you may have received a phone call inviting you to a party – but there was a catch – you had to wear exactly what you had on at that moment! Come As You Are harkens back to a time when showing up to a party in your pajamas or gardening hat was out of the ordinary, but it certainly added a dose of levity to the evening!

On October 10, 2020, at 6:30 pm the Boulder Philharmonic invites you to Come As You Are for a lighthearted, imaginative evening featuring virtual performances by members of the Boulder Philharmonic and guest artists, a silent auction, and a delicious gourmet dinner by Three Leaf Concepts delivered to your home!

Free to Attend, Suggested Donation $100
