BECOMING HEROES FESTIVAL
A festival from March 28 to May 17, 2020
As long as we’ve had a tale to tell, heroes have been part of the story. They emerge out of unlikely situations. They protect others despite the risk and expect nothing in return. We celebrate their selflessness, their service, their sacrifice. And in that celebration, we become part of the story.
Heroes challenge us to realize our own potential for greatness. They provide a source of creativity, inspiration, and vision. While we bask in their glory, we better understand ourselves as individuals, as a community, as a nation, and as global citizens. Reassessment is an inevitable part of that process. Sometimes heroes grow stronger. At other times they disappoint, become diminished or disappear. But in their place new ones arise, new narratives emerge.
Over the course of this special eight-week festival, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, along with twenty other cultural and community organizations, explores how heroes become heroes. Because we all have our heroes and our own stories to tell.
Come. Share. Celebrate.
Be part of something bigger.
