Colorado Symphony Orchestra
Established in 1989, The Colorado Symphony Orchestra is an American orchestra, based in Denver, Colorado serving as the successor to the Denver Symphony. With over 200,000 patrons, the CSO performs a 21-week Masterworks series of classical programs, as well as Pops, Family, Holiday and Summer Parks concerts each season. Most performances are held at the Denver Performing Arts Complex in Boettcher Concert Hall.
The CSO rose to the heights of recognition and glory, both on the regional and national levels, and made a number of recordings for the Naxos label during the 12 year tenure of Marin Alsop, who is the orchestra's former music director, and is now its conductor laureate.
In April 2004, Jeffrey Kahane was appointed music director of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and the Santa Rosa Symphony, as the ninth music director in the 82-year history of the Denver and Colorado Symphony Orchestras. He officially took over as music director in 2005. The Denver Post described Kahane's a tenure as one that has been marked by increased audiences and an uncommonly strong bond with the orchestra's musicians.
Kahanes Colorado Symphony contract was extended through 2012 beginning year 2008. However, in July 2008, Kahane announced his resignation from the orchestra at the end of the year 2009-2010 - reason being a severe case of hypertension in 2007, which caused him to cancel several weeks of concerts. This caused him to concentrate more on his solo piano career.
Beginning January 2008, Douglas Boyd was hired as the principal guest conductor of the orchestra. Initially, a 3 year contract was signed with 2 weeks of guest appearances per season.In September 2008, the Colorado Symphony named Marvin Hamlisch as the principal Pops conductor, beginning a contract of three concerts per year for two years.
25th Anniversary celebrations were held for the Colorado Symphony Orchestra Chorus in the year 2008-2009. Comprising of over 200 volunteers - including some 31 charter members the Colorado Symphony Orchestra Chorus has over the past two decades grown into a nationally respected ensemble. Founded in 1984 by Duain Wolfe at the request of Gaetano Delogu, then the Music Director of the Symphony, the chorus joins the Colorado Symphony for numerous performances (more than 25 this year alone), and radio and television broadcasts, to repeated critical acclaim.
The Chorus has performed at noted music festivals and at diverse locations ranging from the Rocky Mountain region, including the Colorado Music Festival, the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival, to the Grand Teton Music Festival, where it performed Mahlers Symphony No. 3 under the direction of Zubin Mehta.

Maintaining its prestige has been the ultimate goal of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra Chorus. Consequently, The Colorado Symphony Chorus has appeared at select public and special events, and has collaborated with many renowned Colorado arts ensembles, including the Colorado Childrens Chorale, Central City Opera, Opera Colorado and the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble.
The chorus has also sung at the 1991 opening gala for the Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre, provided choral support for international opera star Jose Carreras, and participated in the 1993 Papal Vigil when Pope John Paul II visited Denver.
