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.
Boulder is alive with music.
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.
