Sphere Ensemble at Capitol Hill Concerts
January 12, 20191400 N. Lafayette St., Denver, CO
Sphere Ensemble was formed in 2011 by professional string players driven to explore the vast potential of the string ensemble. Moving beyond the stereotype of classical music tradition, Spheres programs include both the masterpieces of string orchestra repertoire and exceptional works drawn from all genres to create a new definition of modern performance. Innovative arrangements are written by group members generating a unique and transformative musical experience. Spheres debut album, Divergence, was named one of Colorado Public Radios Top 20 classical album releases of 2015.
Sphere Ensemble will perform Simple Symphony by Benjamin Britten, String Serenade by Jack Jarrett, and works by The Beatles, Prince, Mozart, Glenn Miller, and Regina Spektor.
A portion of the proceeds from this concert will benefit Rainbow Alley, a safe and brave space supporting LGBTQ youth and their allies ages 11 to 21. Rainbow Alley provides a drop-in space, youth-led events and activities, counseling and support groups, health services and life skills all in a warm, welcoming, and supportive environment. Sphere Ensemble will also perform a free outreach concert at Rainbow Alley.
This is an all-ages show. Doors open at 6:30 pm. General Admission is $20 at the door ($10 students).
