A picnic with the symphony

The joy of classical music is almost undescribable. Sure, it’s ok on the radio. But there is nothing as amazing as watching a live orchestra perform. The simultaneous movement of the glossy bows. The shine that glistens off the horns in the back row. And the best part – tuning – when every instrument is drawn into a sweet, melodic “A”. I love symphony concerts, especially when they’re in Boettcher Concert Hall. The only problem with that is the money. It’s expensive to go to a show. So naturally, when I learned the Colorado Symphony Orchestra was coming to play a free concert in Greeley, I was ecstatic.Last night, the group played a “concert under the Stars” at the UNC. They started off with a John Philips Sousa march. They also played the 1812 Overture, Stars and Stripes forever – it was phenomenal.If you get a chance to attend a free concert in a park, take it. I promise it will be an enjoyable evening.
