CU Philharmonia Orchestra

“Recollections on Country Life” is an alternative name given to Ludwig van Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, but it also encompasses the entire spirit of this CU Philharmonia performance. The concert opens with Errollyn Wallen’s “Mighty River,” written in 2007. The composer describes the piece “as if the perpetual motion of the music, like water, through its sheer momentum, comes across the cries and echoes of human hearts and voices.” This will be followed by Beethoven’s most explicitly programmatic piece, Symphony No. 6, known as his “Pastorale” symphony.

From orchestras, bands and choirs to jazz, world music and opera to world-class faculty and guest performances, the CU Boulder College of Music brings hundreds of stunning performances to Boulder audiences throughout the academic year.
