With 63 titles and 110 total events, the Colorado Symphony's 2020-2021 Season is packed with a number of symphonic masterworks. The orchestra will also be collaborating with guest artists like Danny Elfman, DeVotchKa, husband-and-wife duo Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn, pianists Joyce Yang and Gabriela Montero, and violinists Karen Gomyo and Leila Josefowicz.

"The Colorado Symphony and I are elated to present a captivating slate of music from a diverse roster of composers, featuring a blend of old and new, all performed by a collection of some of the finest musicians in the world,” wrote Music Director Brett Mitchell in a statement. “What a thrill to welcome back incredible guest artists like Olga Kern, Joshua Roman and Augustin Hadelich. But I’m every bit as excited to showcase the incredible musicians that make up the Colorado Symphony as we share the stage together all season long. Our 2020/21 Season promises to be a breathtaking odyssey through some of the most extraordinary music ever composed, and we can’t wait to share it with our community.”

Subscription tickets for the 2020-2021 season, which are pre-set packages based on concert series, go on sale today, February 28. Flex Passes are also on sale today; those include six ticket vouchers that guests can use for best-available seats to any concert in the season, redeemable one week before the selected concert.
