$27 ($19 senior ages 65+, $12 student; ages 12 & under free)
- Mark Mast, guest conductor
Tom Taylor — Big Basin Breakdown
Johannes Brahms — Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68
Giddy up! April 8, we welcome back Principal Guest Conductor Mark Mast to the Queen City of the Plains with a hearty howdy! Two nuggets kick off the evening — Variations on a Cowboy Tune by colorful Coloradan Cecil Effinger, trailed by Tom Taylor's bluegrass lark, Big Basin Breakdown. We ride off into the sunset with Johannes Brahms' first symphony — a work that took two decades to wrangle but left the composer ridin' high in the saddle.
The Denver Philharmonic Orchestra (DPO) is a nonprofit semi-professional symphony orchestra founded in 1948 by Dr. Antonia Brico, the first woman to conduct the New York Philharmonic orchestra. DPO concerts are accompanied by "More Than Music" events designed to fulfill the orchestra's mission to reimagine the classical music experience for our entire community. Metro Denver citizens support DPO through the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), a unique funding source serving hundreds of metro Denver arts, culture and scientific organizations. https://denverphilharmonic.org/
