Today, the symphony announced its full season lineup. The orchestra will play 49 titles from classical to pop at 90 concerts starting Sept. 17. They’ll also have a roundup of notable musical guests.
For a week in January, composer Danny Elfman, best known for his work on Tim Burton films, will complete a residency with the symphony, treating Colorado to a series of performances and talks Jan. 12-15. On Feb. 19, five-time Grammy winner and Denver George Washington High School graduate Dianne Reeves will return to the Denver stage to lend her voice. And on April 2, Tony-winning Hamilton performer Leslie Odom Jr. will join the symphony to perform songs from his solo album and more.
The symphony will also play six Movie at the Symphony concerts, where it will accompany screenings of films like Elf, Disney’s A Muppet Christmas Carol and Fantasia, as well as family shows like Halloween Spooktacular and alternative shows like The Music of Queen, Beethoven v. Coldplay, and The Times They Are AChangin’: The Words and Music of Bob Dylan. And on Dec. 16, DeVotchKa will return for the group’s sixth collaboration with the symphony to perform new takes on holiday music.
