Details of Sounds Of and the Ticket Luck value
Colorado Springs has kept the classical music alive since 1927. Originally twenty seven local musicians joined hands and Colorado Springs Symphony Ensemble was formed in 2003. Since them, the group has grown and constantly presents one of the highest quality music concerts in the US. Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs, CO has been hosting shows for the ensemble since decades now. Once again this year, the venue will be presenting the works of many professional composers live on its stage. The show is set to take place in January, 2014 and will complete its string of production around March. Sounds Of tickets will take you to watch several talented musicians composing world-class music.
The Colorado-based orchestra is the only ensemble in the Southern Colorado. Every season the orchestra presents three major series: Philharmonic Pops, Vanguard Performances and El Pomar Foundation Masterworks. The orchestra strives to provide a wider spectrum of music to appeal to a wide range of listeners, which also include pieces from Hollywood and Broadway. Every season the Philharmonic Pops series conducts six concerts. The Holiday series feature three to four concerts per season.
Josep Caballe Domenech from Germany has been recently appointed as the orchestra’s director. He is in his third season with the Colorado Springs Philharmonic. Before directing Philharmonic, Josep has conducted several other orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic in London, WDR Cologne, Tonhalle Zurich, Czech Philharmonic, Swedish Radio Symphony and numerous others. His active and impressive portfolio has earned Josep many awards such as the Aspen Prize from the American Academy of Conducting at Aspen.
Highly praised duo, Jonathan Beedle and A.J. Swearingen collaborate with the orchestra after having sold out shows all across the world, to recreate the seminal sounds of folk duos from 1960s and 70s. This season, the duo will be performing with the Philharmonic Orchestra. The two have been performing this profound tribute to “Simon & Garfunkel” for over a decade and their packed shows have proven to have an undeniable effect on their fans. The soaring tenor sound of Jonathan and warm baritone vocals of AJ flawlessly combine to captivate the magic and essence of Simon & Garfunkel’s sound.
With an acoustic guitar and a quiet stage, the duo performs the obscure songs and classic hits of Simon & Garfunkel, recreating memories among the audiences. The American duo Simon & Garfunkel including Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon rose to international fame in 1965 with the hit song "The Sound of Silence". Recognized for their singing harmonies, the two were ranked among 1960s’ most famous recording artists. The duo’s greatest hits such as “I Am A Rock”, “The Sound of Silence”, "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", "Homeward Bound" and “Mrs. Robinson” among others have hit number one in many charts. The duo has won a lot of Grammys and was also inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. Despite a few break-ups, the duo still managed to reunite and released a number of albums.
Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. was the first full-length album released in 1964. Initially the record didn’t do well on the charts; however, the duo re-released the record in 1966 with additional remixes that took it to number 30 on the Billboard album chart. In the same year Sounds of Silence came out to much higher critical acclaim. Recently in 2013, it has also been announced that Library of Congress would preserve the album as it was historically, aesthetically and culturally significant. Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme was also released in the same year, 1966. Tracks like “Cloudy”, “Patterns” and “The Dangling Conversation” among others earned the album rave reviews and it was also included on Rolling Stone's list of ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time’. The duo came up with Bookends in 1968 and its fifth and final record Bridge Over Troubled Water came out in 1970.
Hits from all the albums and material of the duo will be performed live in Colorado Springs Symphony along with other exciting musical acts such as Sound Of The Animals. Sounds Of tickets will take you to enjoy the melodies and beats presented by the orchestra.
