"For our first season together, I wanted to celebrate what makes the Colorado Symphony absolutely unique among orchestras: an extraordinarily wide variety of concerts that feature a compelling blend of old and new, all performed by some of the finest musicians in the country," says Music Director Designate Brett Mitchell, who assumes the role of Music Director on Jul. 1, 2017. "Of course, we're thrilled to welcome such special guests as Yo-Yo Ma and Renée Fleming, but I'm every bit as excited to showcase my incredible colleagues that make up the Colorado Symphony as we share the stage together all season long. I couldn't be happier to begin this next chapter in the Colorado Symphony story."
