Tell your friends:
Summer Symphony is back!
By Nathan Newbrough on April 9, 2013
For the first time in years, the parks of our region will play host to a series of FREE summer performances of the Colorado Springs Philharmonic. Taking their lead from the legendary Summer Symphony concerts established by Charles Ansbacher, Bee Vradenburg and the City of Colorado Springs, this fresh series celebrates and connects our community around area parks, enlivens summer nights, and makes an immeasurable economic impact. And best of all, it operates on a rare public/private funding partnership, including significant resources from the Colorado Springs Philharmonic itself.
I want to take time out to thank the four sponsors behind Summer Symphony: El Pomar Foundation, The Anschutz Foundation, the City of Colorado Springs, and El Paso County Enterprise Zone. Summer Symphony is a reality today because of their vision and dedication to a vibrant Colorado Springs.
Free and open to the public:
Colorado Springs Together
June 26 at Mountain Shadows Park
July 4 at Memorial Park
America the Beautiful
July 20 at Security Service Field (Sky Sox Stadium)
Faithfully: A Symphonic Tribute to the Music of Journey
July 27 at Bear Creek Park
There are so many reasons to love Summer Symphony. It’s free and fun. It’s one of our best traditions. It’s a chance to hear great music. Just like the many parks of Colorado Springs, the Philharmonic is a community treasure. This summer, we’re set for evenings of fun, entertainment, and fireworks under starlit Colorado skies.
