BECOMING HEROES


BECOMING HEROES A festival from March 23, to May 17, 2020 Colorado Springs Philharmonic Josep CaballĂŠ-Domenech Music Director

As long as we’ve had a tale to tell, heroes have been part of the story. They emerge out of unlikely situations. They protect others despite the risk and expect nothing in return. We celebrate their selflessness, their service, their sacrifice. And in that celebration, we become part of the story. Heroes challenge us to realize our own potential for greatness. They provide a source of creativity, inspiration, and vision. While we bask in their glory, we better understand ourselves as individuals, as a community, as a nation, and as global citizens. Reassessment is an inevitable part of that process. Sometimes heroes grow stronger and other times they disappoint, they disappear. But in their place new ones arise, new narratives emerge. Over the course of this special eight-week festival, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, along with twenty-one other arts and non-profit community organizations explore how heroes become heroes. Because we all have our heroes and our own stories to tell.

Come. Share. Celebrate. Be part of something bigger.


My dear friends, In some ways, I feel that our work together has been leading to this moment. For 93 years, this community of Colorado Springs has drawn inspiration from this great orchestra. Today’s Colorado Springs Philharmonic has attracted worldwide talents to our stage – the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, and many others – whose musical gifts are matched only by their humanity and generous spirit. They are heroes of our art form and worldwide musical treasures. They have impacted me personally and inspired our Philharmonic to take on a great community project. Over the next eight weeks, we will dedicate all of our performances and collaborations to the community-wide festival Becoming Heroes. Along with twenty-one esteemed partner organizations, we’ll endeavor to tell the tale of those selfless heroes whose acts inspire us to realize our own potential for greatness. While we bask in their glory, we better understand ourselves as individuals, as a community, as a nation, and as global citizens. This ambitious project will culminate in an even more ambitious performance: Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem. Based on texts by the First World War soldier-poet Wilfred Owen, and commissioned to consecrate the reconstructed Coventry Cathedral destroyed by Hitler’s Luftwaffe, War Requiem is an arresting variation on the Latin Requiem Mass and a public statement about ‘war and the pity of war.’ It is one of the pivotal musical works of the Twentieth Century, serving as a reminder to future generations on the horror and futility of armed conflict. This once-in-a-generation performance will feature 450 musicians and choristers performing an endlessly moving elegy, which is not to be missed. Throughout this festival, we invite you to discover how heroes challenge you to realize your own potential for greatness, to better understand yourself and your neighbors, and to embrace our collective strength. On behalf of the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, I welcome you to Becoming Heroes. Come. Share. Celebrate.

Josep Caballé-Domenech, Music Director

Stories come from a diverse range of individuals and objects from across the western U.S. and the Pikes Peak region.

Josep Caballé-Domenech conductor Michael Hanson violin Hartmann Concerto Funebre Shostakovich Symphony No. 7, “Leningrad” Opening the Festival is Shostakovich’s overwhelming seventh symphony, “Leningrad”. Written quite literally in the face of adversity, Shostakovich conceived and wrote the symphony just as Leningrad fell under siege in 1941. For its premiere, a public appeal was made for all musicians in Leningrad to partake, as all but 15 members of the Leningrad Radio Orchestra had left to serve in the army or succumbed to starvation. The evening prior, a bombardment of all German artillery positions was ordered so as to maintain silence during the performance, which was broadcast over loudspeakers to the entire city and across enemy lines. This incredible work stands as a monument to the tenacity and heroism of the common people.

Live Broadcast: Leningrad Military Artistic Healing – Heroes’ Art on Exhibit Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center March 28 – May 17 1350 Distilling, 520 E. Pikes Peak Ave

Classical KCME March 29 | 2:30 p.m. 88.7 FM


Listen Up – Shostakovich was a master of double-entendre. The “invasion theme”

of the first movement seemed to Soviet officials as representing the Nazi’s approach to Leningrad. . . but could also represent the creep of the authoritarian Soviet regime upon its people.


Marvel vs DC

Colorado Springs Philharmonic April 3–4 | 7:30 p.m. Pikes Peak Center for the Performing Arts Tickets at csphilharmonic.org

Thomas Wilson conductor It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Your friendly neighborhood Philharmonic has some fun with heroes of the imagination – leaping tall buildings, saving the world, and the immortal struggle of one comics powerhouse against another.

Listen Up – John Williams’ iconic score for 1978’s Superman was largely modeled on the

works of 19th Century Romantic composers like Wagner, Strauss, and Brahms, establishing those composers’ voices as “heroic” in the cultural zeitgeist. Their sound has influenced virtually every superhero film score since.

APRIL 6 -19

WEEK THREE & FOUR Silent Sky Fine Arts Center Theatre Company April 2–19 | Various dates and times Fine Arts Center Mainstage Tickets at fac.coloradocollege.edu/theatre-events/silent-sky When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications. Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.

Look Deeper – Henrietta Leavitt, the subject of Silent Sky, established

“Leavitt’s Law” which granted scientists the capability to accurately measure the distance to stars and other galaxies, paving the way for our modern understanding of the scale and structure of the universe.

Silent Sky: Talkback Fine Arts Center Theatre Company April 19 | 4:00 p.m. Fine Arts Center Mainstage

Josep Caballé-Domenech conductor Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble Deborah Jenkins Teske director Richard Einhorn Voices of Light Recounting the last chapter of an heroic life martyred for God and France, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1928 classic is one of the most celebrated of all silent films. Screened in its entirety, with a musical score by Richard Einhorn.

“O feminine form, O sister of wisdom!

How glorious you are, for in you has arisen the mightiest life that death will never stifle.”

– St. Hildegard of Bingen

Listen Up – Nearly all of the lyrics in Einhorn’s score are drawn from Medieval women mystics, chosen for their beauty as literature and also for their relevance to themes in Joan’s life.

Listen Up – “Respect” became Aretha’s signature song because, in her words, “It [reflected] the need of a nation, the need of the average man and woman in the street. . . everyone wanted respect,” and it became an anthem of the civil rights and women’s movements.

Josep Caballé-Domenech conductor Colorado Springs Chorale Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale Christine Brewer soprano Colin Balzer tenor Tyler Duncan baritone Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece was written and premiered in 1962 to reconsecrate Coventry Cathedral, which was destroyed by bombs in the Battle of Britain in 1940. Based on texts by the First World War soldier-poet Wilfred Owen, War Requiem is an extraordinary re-imagining of the Latin Requiem Mass. Impressive in its scope and intent, this monumental and poignant work is an unparalleled tour-de-force.

“What passing bells for these who die as cattle?”

- Wilfred Owen

Listen Up – The bells toll and the choir sings a dissonant and ambiguoussounding tritone that creates a sense of unrest. Britten never resolves this tension, reinforcing his dedication on the title page:

“My subject is War, and the pity of War. The Poetry is in the pity. . . All a poet can do today is warn.”
