The Denver Post has published a preview of Brett Mitchell's inaugural season as Music Director of the Colorado Symphony as single tickets go on sale on Tuesday, August 1:

This is [...] the first season with 38-year-old Brett Mitchell at the helm as the new music director. Mitchell comes from the renowned Cleveland Orchestra, where he served as associate conductor and as music director of the organization’s Youth Orchestra.

“Our entire 2017/18 season is an outstanding mix of repertoire with concerts for every musical taste,” said Mitchell, who assumed the role of music director on July 1, in a release. “I’m as proud of the wide variety and high quality of programming as I am honored to take the podium for our first season together.”

Mitchell’s arrival has raised hopes of revitalizing the 28-year-old orchestra....

The season will officially kick off on Fri., Sept. 15 with a three-day performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. The canonical classic will be held at the Colorado Symphony’s home, Boettcher Concert Hall, the first “in-the-round” symphony hall in the U.S.
