“Twist” is my favorite

Dear Friends, We do a lot of fun things at the Denver Philharmonic. DPO With a Twist just might be my favorite. Why? The food! — If you haven’t had Dazzle’s mac-n-cheese, I’ll just say it: you haven’t lived The drinks! — One of the tough requirements of my job is cocktail tasting for DPO with […]

Dear Friends, One of my very first CDs I had as a child was the recording of Johannes Brahms’ Double Concerto for violin and cello. I’ve craved the opportunity to perform this piece for as long as I can remember, and I am thrilled that my first time on stage with the work will be […]

Dear Friends & Supporters, On Friday, February 10, we will continue our 16–17 Powerhouse Season with Hopeless Romantics. The Romantic Period was probably the richest era in terms of producing the most beloved, iconic and enduring masterpieces. Irrefutably, it’s the age that produced the most passionate music ever written. It all started with Beethoven revolutionizing […]

Experience Central’s historic pipe organ!

The organ pipes at Central Presbyterian are a prominent architectural feature above the new Antonia Brico Stage, but most people don’t realize that what you see is not what you hear. All of the hand-painted facade pipes are purely for decoration, and the roughly 3,000 organ pipes that do speak are all hidden behind. Many […]

Dear Friends, I am thrilled to be playing the historic pipe organ at Central Presbyterian November 18 for two great works with Maestro Lawrence Golan and the DPO. To quote Mozart, “In my eyes and ears, the organ will forever be the King of instruments,” and that evening we will indeed be Pulling Out All The […]

A Student Remembers Antonia

My memories of Dr. Antonia Brico are from childhood. She was my piano teacher for several years. When I was about 4½, I started playing the ‘The Sounds of Silence’ by Simon & Garfunkel (both hands) after hearing it on the radio over at my parents’ friends’ home. The next day my mom went out and bought a […]

Antonia Brico made her Philharmonic debut under particularly public circumstances at Lewisohn Stadium, the Philharmonic’s then outdoor summer venue in Upper Manhattan. […]

A Note from Chris Wineman

Dear Friends, When the Denver Philharmonic and Central Presbyterian Church decided to remodel the church’s chancel into a stage, I recall being daunted at the thought of “collaborating” with Frank Edbrooke, the original architect of the 1892 church. Edbrooke is a giant in Colorado’s architectural history — counting the Brown Palace, Loretto Heights University and the Tabor Grand Opera […]
