This year, I think we can make it to $10,000. Contribute now Like most millennials living in Denver, I have student loans, high rent […]

How My Father Taught Me to Find Satisfaction in Music by Sarah Hogan, DPO Board Member One of my first musical memories is my father pounding his hands to the beat of the Rolling Stones on the steering wheel of our car. The music was loud, his voice was bad, and his rhythm was questionable […]

Dear Friends, It’s going to be a chilly night — I hope you can join us and warm up at tonight’s concert Inextinguishable! And, hot off the press — The Denver Post did just name the DPO as one of 10 Colorado arts organizations that “get it right.” Arrive early for the Denver Fire Department’s chili cook-off — taste ’em all and […]

Our new fundraiser series DPO With a Twist debuts October 22 at DazzleJazz with its first concert, “Strings Straight Up.” The other day, we stopped by Dazzle to invent a new cocktail “with a twist” to serve […]

The Most Exciting Time of the Year

Dear DPO Family, Is this the most exciting time of the year? I think a strong argument can be made that it is. You can’t get on a social media without seeing shiny new lunch boxes, new clothes and shoes, and the back-to-school excitement. Our timelines are filled with team colors, logos, and the smack […]

Flashback Friday

Dear Friends, I don’t know about you, but my summer is flying by — I’ve been road-tripping, concert-going, Rockies-cheering and have learned a very important lesson on the proper use of sunscreen. Oh, and we’ve been season planning! As the 2015-16 Season approaches, we have been looking back at our past year and reflecting about […]

First, I remember the packed houses. The DPO has broken its own attendance record three years running. Over our 2014–15 Season, we saw more […]
