Dear Friends,

After a joyous and record-breaking first season with the Denver Philharmonic, I can’t wait to welcome you to our 2014–15 Season, From Revolutions to Reformations. It’s a diverse season packed with a wide variety of works from around the world and across centuries.

Thank you for warmly welcoming me in my inaugural season and for your support of our orchestra. We look forward to seeing you over the coming year for the orchestra’s sixty-seventh season.

Sincerely,

Lawrence Golan
Music Director
