We invite you to join the Boulder Philharmonic and Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras in a perfect evening of music, glamour, and optimism.

Oh, Happy We!

On November 3, we will transform a hangar at the Rocky Mountain Metro Airport into the Best of All Possible Worlds. Delight in delicious catering from Three Leaf Concepts and an equally sumptuous slate of thrilling instrumental and operatic performances. Rub shoulders with special guest, violinist Midori, thrill to the sounds of the Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras’ up-and-coming instrumentalists, and revel in soprano Phoenix Gayles’ rendition of Glitter and Be Gay.

Each ticket sold to this sparkling celebration will help Make Our Garden Grow―benefiting performance education across the Greater Boulder area, and sparking the next generation of musical artists.

Dress code is black tie sparkle. Tuxedoes are not required, sparkle is encouraged!
