MOZART & STRAVINSKY CONDUCTED BY DERIDDER

WHEN
From: February 17 2017 @ 7:30 pm
To: February 17 2017 @ 9:00 pm

WHERE: Boettcher Concert Hall

For these midwinter concerts, Andre de Ridder returns to Denver to show locals why he's considered one of the most creative conductors in the world. The program begins with viola soloist Nadia Sirota taking on American Nico Muhly's Viola Concerto, premiered in 2015 by Ms. Sirota and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Mark Stryker of the Detroit Free Press liked what he heard, writing, "The music is spare, tactile and a little spacey, and seems to briefly open a window on the infinite. . . . By the end, you feel as if you've been on a journey, happy to have been along for the ride.” The concert also features Mozart’s Symphony No. 34 in C major, K. 338 and Stravinsky’s Pétrouchka.

Ballet MasterWorks

Colorado Ballet will present a collection of three master ballet works to live music by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra in Ballet MasterWorks, which includes Firebird, based on the Russian folklore tale of the Firebird, a magical creature who assists a prince in rescuing a maiden from an evil sorcerer. The production will also feature Serenade choreographed by George Balanchine to Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings in C.” Colorado Ballet is extremely excited to present a work by choreographer Jiří Kylián for the first time—rounding out the program with Petite Mort, with music by Mozart.

Inside the Orchestra’s Tiny Tots Performances

WHEN
From: February 18 2017 @ 9:30 am
To: February 18 2017 @ 11:30 am

WHERE: History Colorado Center 1200 Broadway Denver, CO 80203

Tiny Tots gets children truly inside the orchestra by seating the audience on the floor and surrounding them with a 30+ piece orchestra. Designed for children six and under, this 45-minute program gives young ones the chance to interact with the conductor and the musicians and learn about the instruments in the process. Tiny Tots audiences receive an up-close-and-personal performance in a casual, fun environment. The experience is one-of-a-kind! Highlights of the Winter Tiny Tots season: Combining old and new favorites, from classical to pop, this season will include all new repertoire. Dancers from Kim Robards Dance will perform and teach children how to move to music, and an opera singer from Central City Opera will be joining us for some classic songs. Kids will get to move along with the music and will be guided through “theatre of the mind” style activities that correspond to the music they’re hearing around them. Each performance is followed by 15 minutes where the children can meet the musicians and see their instruments. Kids will get the chance to get hands on with instruments at an instrument petting zoo sponsored by Neighborhood Music Stapleton. Performances are from 9:30-10:15 and 10:45-11:30.
