Denver Philharmonic Orchestra performs a FREE concert on Friday, October 8 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Cheesman Park. Two Classical-era foils headline the season premiere, Clash of the Titans. First up, championship fencer Joseph Bologne, known as the Chevalier de Saint-Georges, proved his might with both sword and pen writing dozens of musical compositions, including his deft and delicate first symphony.
Next, DPO Principal Clarinet Kwami Barnett tackles Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s soaring Clarinet Concerto with agility and precision before the all-powerful finale — Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter.”
The concert is performed rain or shine at the Pavilion. Bring a blanket or your well-loved camping chairs and make yourself comfortable for the concert.
There are no concession stands at this event, but you are welcome to bring picnic baskets, including your choice of alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage. No glass allowed (boxed wine only, please!).
Reusable food containers and water bottles are strongly encouraged. “Trail rules” apply — pack it in, pack it out.
1900 E. 11th Ave., Denver.
