Symphony in Stone

On September 7 in Macky Auditorium, the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra will perform the world premiere of Jeffrey Nytch’s First Symphony, “Formations,” which draws inspiration from Colorado’s fascinating geology. Study up for the concert – and meet the composer in person - with Open Space and Mountain Parks naturalist Dave Sutherland, who will lead you on a journey into Boulder’s past with wild rock stories that include dinosaurs, glaciers, vast swamps, oceans and ancient mountain ranges now vanished into the dust of time. Meet on the north side of NCAR at the Walter Orr Roberts trailhead. 2.5 miles, 400 feet elevation gain.
