Orchestral Series
Saturday, July 20, 2024 at 6pm Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater

The Philharmonic gives the Colorado premiere of To See the Sky by Joel Thompson in a powerful van Zweden-led program featuring the rousing Prelude to Act I of Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and Brahms’ profound masterpiece Symphony No. 4.

Bahamas-born Joel Thompson often writes works involving social justice, but he envisions To See the Sky, commissioned by a consortium that included Bravo! Vail and the New York Philharmonic, as a more general invitation “to engage in an active introspection.”
