When you think of the symphony, you probably imagine a group of musicians playing instruments in a beautiful setting. You might also think of a symphony as being a form of classical music. While it’s true that symphonies are often played by classical musicians, they can also be played by rock artists or even jazz bands.
The symphony is an incredibly versatile form of music and it has been around for hundreds of years. The first symphonies were written during the Baroque period (1600-1750) by composers like Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel. It wasn’t until later in the 19th century that composers like Richard Wagner and Johannes Brahms began writing works for full orchestra (orchestra) instead of just solo instruments.
The Fort Collins Symphony invites you to experience this magic for yourself. Through a series of concerts that range from family-friendly to deeply profound. The powerful force that is a live symphony will take you places you never thought possible. Music can bring back memories in a split second, yet nothing can spark your imagination like the symphony.
