Prompted by the question "What brings us here?" Fixmer wrote Seven Symphonic Portraits: A Weld County Reflection to pay homage to the diverse stories, experiences, and dreams of the people who have called Weld County home. This composition consists of seven movements, each uniquely capturing the essence of past, present, and future generations.
The GPO is excited to present other captivating compositions, such as Alan Hovhaness' Mysterious Mountain, which transports listeners to serene landscapes, and the triumphant "Jubilee" from George W. Chadwick's Symphonic Sketches, sure to leave you inspired.
Elevating the experience, your ticket grants you premium access to a curated display of Weld County artifacts, presented by Greeley Museums in the lobby of the Union Colony Civic Center. Additional tickets are available for a Colorado-themed seated dinner at Aunt Helen's Café and Wine Bar prior to the concert.
This concert promises to be an unforgettable evening of music and storytelling. Don't miss the opportunity to witness the world premiere of Seven Symphonic Portraits: A Weld County Reflection and immerse yourself in the history of Weld County. This concert is sponsored by the Weld Community Foundation.
