> “Michael Christie is a director open to adventure and challenge… his programming is fresh and adventurous, and he has made himself as accessible as can be.” –The New York Times

DEAR MUSIC LOVERS: Welcome back, everyone! It’s Big Music in the summertime and I’m so pleased to offer these six weeks of blockbuster performances to you. Our community has come to expect world-class performances from our Festival Orchestra. These amazing musicians converge on Boulder from orchestras across North America to share a summer of passionate music-making and the best our region offers for the perfect summer. While our musicians are here they will share the enchanting Chautauqua Auditorium stage with artists such as the Academy Award Best Actor winner, F. Murray Abraham (Salieri in Amadeus), enterprising pianist Simone Dinnerstein, and the legendary Brubeck jazz family progeny. If Mozart is your guy, I am offering five performances in one week, taking a look at the numerous areas of music upon which he made his indelible imprint. F. Murray Abraham’s insight into the creation of Salieri for the silver screen will be among so many highlights during that soul-satisfying week. My daughter, Sinclair, will be four when the festival kicks off and I want her to have the opportunity to experience live orchestral music in the most entertaining and inspiring way. This year those great Disney songs she and I sing together will come to life in multimedia performances early in the summer. She will also enjoy our Young People’s concert, “Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage” at the end June. Please bring your young children and/or grandchildren to these performances or stop by our free and open rehearsals from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every day but Tuesdays. Our summer festival is filled with music, old and new, from salsa to the stately palaces of central Europe. I hope you find many opportunities to join us and make this your best summer ever!

And then there are the classics, from a Mary Poppins medley to the “Yo ho” of Pirates of the Caribbean. When everyone joins together for magical moments and melodies that Mouseketeers of all ages know by heart, it feels like a small world, after all. Come early for a “picnic- in-the-park” and make this your family’s most memorable night of the summer!

BEYOND THE SCORE®

Holst: The Planets Carolyn Kuan, Conductor

Thursday, July 19 & Friday, July 20 Delve deep into the meaning and historical context of Holst’s The Planets, one of the most beloved works of the 20th century, in Beyond the Score®: Other Worlds? Known as a pioneer of the so-called English musical renaissance, Holst looked far beyond the island of Britain to find inspiration for the suite in the ancient cultures of Greece and India, in the myths and fancies of astrology and theosophy, and in the revolutionary musical discoveries of Debussy and Stravinsky. Join us for an enthralling exploration of this work through a stunning visual and musical presentation on the first half of the concert. After intermission, enjoy a complete performance of The Planets by the Colorado Music Festival Orchestra, under the baton of guest conductor Carolyn Kuan.

The Rediscovered Masters Program is a series of performances celebrating Jewish composers and their music, with an emphasis on music composed before, during, and immediately after World War II. Music Director Michael Christie is committed to resurrecting these lost treasures and celebrating these artists’ rightful places in musical history.

11


MAHLER’S SEVENTH Thursday, July 26 & Friday, July 27 Maestro Michael Christie continues the Festival’s Mahler cycle with one of his most powerful symphonies.

Sunday, July 29 Join us for an evening of Brandenburg Concertos Old & New with Michael Christie and the CMF Chamber Orchestra.

Today it reflects a more mature side of music and, fronted by some of the genre’s most talented professionals, it bears its own fingerprint…its own secret “clave.”
