About John Williams' Intergalactic concert: The Colorado Symphony is boldly going where no orchestra has gone before! With space-themed favorites from John Williams' scores for Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, and Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Holst's The Planets, and more, this program will be out of this world!

About Beethoven's Violin Concerto: The four opening drum taps that begin Beethoven’s majestic Violin Concerto remain one of the most surprising and audacious ideas that the composer ever committed to paper, setting the stage for a transcendent work that stands among the greats of the repertoire.

About Rachmaninoff Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini: Simon Trpceski, brings trademark virtuosity and dynamic stage presence to Rachmaninoff’s iconic Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, conducted by Carolyn Kuan. Plus, Mendelssohn’s Fourth Symphony evokes the exuberant spirit of Italy in a can’t-miss work teeming with energetic color.
