“Escape to Hope” – Fort Collins Symphony

May 13

The Lincoln Center: 417 W. Magnolia St., Fort Collins, CO


The Fort Collins Symphony closes its season with a concert featuring three magnificent and hopeful works. Emmy-nominated American composer Michael Abels wrote Global Warming to describe the warming of international relations in 1990. The composition explores the similarities he heard in the music of various cultures. Claude Debussy’s Nocturnes was inspired by symbolist poet Henri de Régnier and conjures images of clouds, festivals, and enchanting sirens. The season closes with Ukrainian composer Sergei Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5, which he wrote to glorify “the grandeur of the human spirit.”

Tickets: $25-67 adult, $10 student/child, $25 livestream
