Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra announces upcoming concert season
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - This year, Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra’s concerts will have you yearning for the interstellar.
CSO’s season, titled “The Universe Awaits,” features 12 performances beginning Sept. 16, 2023 and ends with their final concert on June 9, 2024.
As reflected in the season’s title, this year’s theme draws its inspiration from space. Some of the programs simply allude to space, such as Mahler’s “Titan” while others are directly inspired by space, like Holst’s “The Planets.”
In addition to Mahler & Holst, other highlights of the season include Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony, Debussy’s “Clair de lune,” Nielsen’s “Helios Overture,” Wagner’s “Flying Dutchman Overture”, and Britten’s “Four Sea Interludes.”
Soloists will also be featured extensively throughout the season. Pianist Adam Zukiewicz, the Heartland Marimba Quartet, Cheyenne native actor/director Sarah Hartmann, and CSO’s own principals, cellist Beth Vanderborgh, trumpeter Derek McDonald, and Gina Johnson on English horn will all hit the stage.
Season tickets go on sale to the public Thursday and individual concert tickets will be available Aug. 15.
Tickets may be purchased by visiting www.cheyennesymphony.org or calling 307-778-8561.
