Holiday Cheer!
To our festive friends,

As the holidays shimmer on the horizon, it is with immense joy that I extend a warm invitation to our enchanting concert, "Holiday Cheer!" Get ready to be swept away by the magic of the season as the Denver Philharmonic Orchestra, in collaboration with the Colorado Chorale, presents an evening filled with festive delights.

Our program is a musical gift, featuring timeless classics and heartwarming arrangements that capture the essence of the holidays. From the jubilant sounds of "We Need A Little Christmas" to the radiant melodies of Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers" from The Nutcracker, and the festive cheer of "It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year," the concert is a harmonious celebration of the hap-happiest season.

In need of a last minute holiday gift? We are delighted to offer a subscription package for the remaining three shows of the season. By joining our musical family for this festive journey, you not only save 30% off the season but also ensure a season filled with joyous symphonies.

Beyond the music, we extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who contributed to the Denver Philharmonic Orchestra through Giving Tuesday and Colorado Gives Day. Your generosity sustains our operations and ensures that classical music remains accessible to our community. If you're interested, making a donation is easy!

Your presence makes these moments magical, and we are beyond grateful to be a part of your holiday traditions. So, grab a cup of cocoa, bundle up in the warmth of our enchanting music, and get ready to unwrap the joyous surprises that await.

Warm wishes,

Roger Haak, Executive Director
