Musicians from the Boulder Philharmonic are playing two FREE one-hour concerts this weekend. On Saturday, September 9, the orchestra’s brass ensemble plays from 11 a.m. to noon at the outdoor Flagstaff Sunrise Amphitheater. The landmark venue is on public land managed by Boulder Mountain Parks and Open Space, which is 50 years old this year.
On Sunday, September 10, a string quartet of Boulder Phil artists play at the Boulder Public Library. An “instrument petting zoo” at 1:15 p.m. enables youngsters to get up close and personal with a variety of instruments, followed by the concert from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. The orchestra is celebrating its 60th anniversary of bringing classical music to Boulder and last season was one of just four regional orchestras invited to perform at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
