Augustana Arts Concert Series 2014–2015

Everyone at Augustana Arts is working on next season! City Strings youth music sessions will start up right after school begins, and here is just a sneak peek of the 2014–2015 Concert Series.

Opening October 4 with the lush vocals of an all-male vocal ensemble, Sound of the Rockies performs a fun Pirate-themed concert.

The Musica Sacra Chamber Orchestra (MSCO), under David Rutherford’s baton, will feature a season of MASTERWORKS for chamber orchestra including Respighi’s Three Botticelli Pictures, Copland’s Appalachian Spring, Beethoven’s Fifth, Dvorak’s Serenade for Winds, Mozart’s Flute Concerto #2, Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending, etc. Also, distinctive solo artists and a unique collaboration with the “Narrators”—sharing stories of their lives as influenced by music, will follow. Of course, MSCO’s approach will add a good dose of audience fun to illuminate the stories for a super-engaging concert!
Special guests in 2014–2015 will include Eugenio Fagiani, organist, direct from Italy, and an exciting national touring string ensemble, which has been receiving a lot of attention, Carpe Diem.

The Colorado Women’s Chorale will highlight the contemporary composer Gwyneth Walker in the fall and Vivaldi’s Gloria in the spring!

Several Denver-based groups will be with us, including the internationally acclaimed jazz artists, DOTSERO, who will again headline “Jazz Night Out” in support of City Strings, youth music education program; and speaking of youth, the Denver Brass will present their Tiny Tots Love Music concert at Augustana Arts.

Free programming will include an impressive holiday concert with choral and chamber orchestra, and we’ll beat the mid-winter blues by presenting “Choral Elite Festival 2015,” featuring the most impressive young voices in our area. The Denver Chapter of the AGO and the Alliance Francaise de Denver will embark with Augustana Arts on a film and musical exploration of organ builder, Aristede Cavaille-Coll and the French musical sounds of his time.

You won’t want to miss any of the Augustana Arts 2014–2015 Concert Series! Tickets will be on sale soon. Click here for details.
