MASON BATES Anthology of Fantastic Zoology

Special guest conductor Edwin Outwater conducts a program of four modern composers well worth a listen. Principal Violist Basil Vendryes tackles an incredible piece for viola and orchestra by Owen Pallett titled Five Women. The orchestra then navigates the beauty and mystique of five other feature works throughout the evening! Mason Bates’ spectacular Anthology of Fantastic Zoology is the centerpiece of the evening. This half-hour work involves no electricity — at least not the kind coming from an outlet on stage! But in this vivid setting, the psychedelic bestiary teems with strange creatures and wild sonic effects. It’s a must-see evening of the season!

n We’re pleased to introduce LISTEN/HEAR, casual sessions of live performance threaded with thoughtful talk-throughs to help you understand and truly hear symphonic music. This new series of four concerts throughout the season will take you on a journey through the evolution of symphonic music from its modest beginnings to the powerhouse ensemble you see it as today! If you were a fan of Inside the Score, this is a must-see! [Organizer's description]

It was an absolutely amazing evening. This was my fourth year of seeing DeVotchKa and the Colorado Symphony together and they just get better and better every year!
