Prost! With a proclamation from Governor John Hickenlooper in hand proclaiming April 7, 2017 “Denver and Bavarian Philharmonic Day,” we officially launched a multi-year partnership with the Bavarian Philharmonic (Bayerische Philharmonie) at a sold-out concert in Denver. Based in Munich, Germany, the leading European orchestra is led by Music Director Mark Mast.

Through this groundbreaking international partnership, our organizations will focus on innovation in programming and performance, with additional emphasis on patron experience and audience engagement. In addition to musician and conductor exchanges, joint programming, and co-commissioned music, the partnership will also leverage social media, live streaming and original audience experience elements to engage and provide educational experiences for patrons in both cities.
