The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses

  • Boettcher Concert Hall

Fall in Love. Again. The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses will perform with your Colorado Symphony on June 30 and July 1, 2017, bringing an updated orchestral adventure to the Boettcher Concert Hall. The show will feature some big surprises, including an all new movement from Skyward Sword, an updated overture, and the return of a classic that might just make some wishes come true!

Celebrating 30 years of stirring virtual adventure and memorable soundtracks with live orchestral renditions directly approved by franchise producer Eiji Aonuma, The Symphony of the Goddesses is now in its fourth season. The two-hour concert comes to life with a 66-piece orchestra, 24-person choir, and a reimagined score that draws from recent and requested Zelda games, including A Link Between WorldsTwilight Princess, and the remake of Majora’s Mask, while still paying homage to such classics as Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past. The concert’s five-movement symphony regales ears with Nintendo composer Koji Kondo’s original music, recalling moments of Link conquering dungeons, running through forests, and struggling to decide what color tunic to wear. Throughout the evening, a video collage syncs up with the adventurous tunes to spotlight exciting moments from the venerable franchise.

The Vancouver Island, B.C., native's 1999 LP When I Look In Your Eyes was the first jazz album in 25 years to be nominated for an Album of the Year Grammy®, if that tells you anything. Krall has gone on to both critical acclaim and commercial success by deftly negotiating the line between traditional pop and modern jazz, as much for her nimble yet understated piano skills as her husky, sensual vocals. (She also happens to be Mrs. Elvis Costello). Wallflower, her latest album on Verve, includes covers by The Mamas & the Papas, the Eagles, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Randy Newman and others. Tonight she teams up with the Colorado Symphony.

This performance is ticketed by AXS.

Blind Boys of Alabama

  • Lone Tree Arts Center

“Their mix of ecstatic praise-giving and overt showmanship remains stirring.” –Chicago Tribune

The Blind Boys of Alabama have the rare distinction of being recognized around the world as both living legends and modern-day innovators. They are not just gospel singers borrowing from old traditions; the group helped to define those traditions in the 20th century and almost single-handedly created a new gospel sound for the 21st century.  Since the original members first sang together as kids at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the late 1930s (including Jimmy Carter, who leads the group today), the band has persevered through seven decades to become one of the most recognized and decorated roots music groups in the world.

Girls Only-The Secret Comedy of Women

  • Garner Galleria Theatre

Girls Only is an original comedy that celebrates the honor, truth, humor and silliness of being female. With a two-woman cast and audiences full of raucous, laughing women, the show has found quick popularity in its unique examination of all things girly.

Born out of the earnest and sweetly ridiculous writings the two authors discovered in their girlhood diaries, the GIRLS ONLY mix of sketch comedy, improvisation, audience participation, and hilarious songs and videos will remind you that underneath, women all have very funny and very charming feminine similarities.

We encourage women to come and bring their mothers, daughters, sisters and girlfriends. We promise you’ll leave laughing, ready to dig out your old diary.

Warning: This show contains feminine subject matter including teenage diaries, breast feeding, tampons, shadow puppets, pantyhose, menstrual cycles, slumber parties, menopause and maxi pads.

Leonard Bernstein once likened Gershwin and Tchaikovsky as among the world’s most “inspired melodists,” and Tchaikovsky’s bold, booming Symphony No. 5 drives this riveting program, conducted by Music Director Brett Mitchell. Kevin Cole, famed for his interpretations of Gershwin, will deliver a peerless rendition of the composer’s intoxicating Rhapsody in Blue, which was inspired by the “steely rhythms [and] rattle-ty bang” of a New York train. Composer and fellow New Yorker Missy Mazzoli, hailed as “Brooklyn’s post-millennial Mozart” (Time Out New York), offers a dreamscape that is as approachable as it is transcendent in These Worlds in Us.

After leading a lauded performance of our 2014 All-Beethoven program, Jun Märkl returns to Boettcher Concert Hall to conduct the internationally praised Colorado Symphony Chorus in Mozart’s immortal Requiem.

Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration — a tone poem depicting the death of an artist — complements the immortal Requiem in a program that proves the longevity of brilliance.

Sometimes, a little distance is all you need to see things in a brand new way. For astronaut Terry Virts, his newfound perspective was from the International Space Station (ISS), where he installed the Cupola module, granting an unprecedented 360-degree view from the station. When he later became the commander of the ISS, he made good use of the Cupola, taking more photographs than any astronaut who came before him. Many of those images were later used in the National Geographic book View From Above and IMAX film A Beautiful Planet, but to hear Virts tell it, no photo can capture the perfect shade of blue from a sunrise viewed from outer space.

"'Take Me To The River' was one of the best things we saw at Bonnaroo.” –Rolling Stone

Take Me to the River is a live performance based on the award-winning film and record that brought together multiple generations of iconic Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians to record a historic new album and re-imagine the utopia of racial, gender, and generational collaboration of Memphis (Stax, High records) in its heyday. This historic show features a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see legends William Bell (2017 Grammy Winner), Bobby Rush (2017 Grammy winner), and Charlie Musselwhite (2014 Grammy winner) share the stage and perform classics and new collaborations. The all-star band includes the HiRhythm Section (27 Gold and Platinum records, All of Al Green’s classics) and Grammy award-winner Boo Mitchell, award-winning director and Grammy nominee Martin Shore, alumni from the STAX Music Academy, and special appearances from Academy Award-winner Frayser Boy and Critics Choice Award winner Al Kapone.
