Under the vision and leadership of Music Director Michael Butterman, the
Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra is celebrating its 53rd year of reflecting all
that makes Boulder special--its creativity, spirit, beauty and quest for
knowledge. The Boulder Phil is a critically acclaimed professional
orchestra, presenting performances nine months out of the year and employing
a core of 72 of our region's most highly trained musicians.
The Boulder Phil's main performance venue is historic Macky Auditorium on
the CU-Boulder campus. The orchestra's Masterworks series--broadcast across
the state on Colorado Public Radio--features a dynamic mix of masterpieces
and promising new works, highlighting both accomplished and emerging guest
artists with a special emphasis on Boulder's own creative community.
The orchestra's broad reach in the community includes special events such as
the annual co-production of *The Nutcracker *with the Boulder Ballet and
summer concerts at the Arvada Center Amphitheater. The Boulder Phil also
works to inspire the next generation of music-lovers through its Discovery
Concerts reaching 4th and 5th grade students across three counties
