Explore the stars and their myths with the Arapahoe Philharmonic! Hear the thunderbolts of Jupiter in Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 (nicknamed the “Jupiter Symphony”). Dance through the stories of the Roman god Mercury with Satie. Then take a bike ride through the sky with music from “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial,” and feel the spirit of Galileo in John Clay Allen’s “And Yet It Moves.” This otherworldly concert is bound to sweep you off your feet!

Your ticket includes a pre or post concert planetarium show in our lobby from our friends at Challenger Center Colorado!

What gives you that warm holiday feeling more than a holiday movie? Hearing the scores from those movies live from the Arapahoe Phil of course! Feel the love of family with music from “Home Alone,” the excitement of the holidays with “Nightmare Before Christmas,” or the bittersweet memories of “Meet Me in St. Louis.” This night of festive music is guaranteed to get you in the holiday spirit!

Experience music from educator-composers of all eras! Feel the glory of the American landscape in Dvořák’s Cello Concerto (featuring our concert competition winner Ethan Blake), written while he was the director of the National Conservatory in New York. Loop through the solar system in professor Missy Mazzoli’s “Sinfonia for Orbiting Spheres.” Be serenaded by lecturer Eric Ewazen’s “Ballade for Clarinet, Harp, and Strings,” and hear the mythical story of Prometheus in piano teacher Beethoven’s “Creatures of Prometheus Overature.” This is a class you don’t want to be late for!

Special Feature Concerts

Various locations, not included in Ticket Trio package.

Spend an afternoon in the “magical, psychedelic, botanic utopia” (Denverite) of Spectra’s “Novo Ita” with the Arapahoe Philharmonic’s woodwind quartet!

Local wine and beer will be available for purchase. All ticket and drink proceeds go to benefit the Arapahoe Philharmonic’s #BacktotheStage 21-22 Season.

Spend a merry evening with the Arapahoe Phil exploring the influence of Scotland on classical music. Travel the beautiful, rolling landscape of Scotland through Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony. Feel the rhythm of Scottish folk music in Malcolm Arnold’s “Four Scottish Dances,” and hear a legendary epic in Scottish composer Thea Musgrave’s “Song of the Enchanter.” Then raise a glass with Brahm’s “Academic Festival Overture”- an irreverent potpourri of drinking songs written for a university that awarded Brahms an honorary doctorate. From toe-tappers to glorious melodies, this concert has it all!

Travel with pirate Zheng Yi Sao as she learns about music from all around the world! This hour long concert will introduce children to music from many cultures and traditions in a fun and exciting way!
