Music is the universal language. It speaks to us in ways both mortal and divine. It celebrates our hopes. Inspires our imaginations. Urges us to dream of daring originality.
To take part in music’s eternal mysteries all one needs is a sympathetic ear, an open heart, and an insatiable love of life. In 2018-19, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic will bring eager audiences the most passionate music ever composed, performed with some of the finest musicians in the world.
Join us. It’s going to be a special journey.

al and leigh buettner SIGNATURE SERIES
A new name. A new take. Beginning September 2018, Vanguard Performances will take a new name: The Signature Series. Every “Signature” concert is an event, a departure from the everyday, a singular pageant dedicated to the individual creative genius. In each concert, a distinct artist will be featured: a musician, a composer, or a conductor. They’re given the spotlight–and the control. From the first note to the last, every aspect is in their hands. Just imagine what will happen.
Bonus: Subscribers get all four concerts for the price of three.
