What's interesting about this concert...

  • As a former member of the New World Symphony, Colorado artist ALEX GONZALEZ regularly served as concertmaster to Michael Tilson Thomas and other distinguished guests.

  • Conga del Fuego Nuevo — This orchestral dance, a conga of fire, has color, character, and flair. Energetic dance rhythms and a fiery percussion section create a dramatic atmosphere for all. 

  • Beethoven considered the Seventh Symphony his "most excellent symphony." The slow movement, perhaps the most enthralling, has had a profound impression on listeners from the beginning — it's simply irresistible!
