Autumn Awakening

Tchaikovsky’s ‘The Nutcracker’ returns to the Pikes Peak Center, Thanksgiving weekend.

The Philharmonic comeback means reunion with friends, and family experiences.

Hear us out: the Colorado Springs Philharmonic has no official position on politics or Pumpkin Spice lattes.  But just as politics is inevitable, and the sweet scent of nutmeg and cinnamon is everywhere, so is the change of seasons.  And boy do we love Autumn, when crisp days mean fluffy sweaters and thoughts turning inward with dreams of music and connection with loved ones.

On Thanksgiving weekend, musicians of the Philharmonic will be returning to the stage for Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker.  For many, that’s the official start of the holidays.  Grandchildren with grandparents.  Moms and dads with kids in tow.  Ballet aficionados turn out to see the finest dancers of the Oklahoma City Ballet.  There’s greatness on stage, and in the orchestra pit, …but it’s about so much more than just the performance.  Just being there, in closeness with loved ones, inspired by the mystery of the performance — these experiences are the ones we remember forever.

The Colorado Springs Philharmonic is serious about these moments.  Live performance connects us with our neighbors and builds a lifetime of unforgettable memories.

Autumn is here and live performance is an invitation for us all.
