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.
Join Matt Diekman, violist from the Boulder Phil, for an easy hike along one of Boulder’s spectacular trails. Matt will guide the conversation through Western music’s connection with the natural world, and specifically to how stringed instruments are constructed and the mechanics of how they work (very much related to natural materials and awareness of the environment). We will listen to Matt play his viola in one of OSMP’s naturally-formed stone amphitheaters! The location will be provided with reservations. details
Reservations open Sept. 1. Please reserve spaces here:
