I treated my wife (and myself) to the Philharmonic for Valentine's Day. We were thrilled. (A friend of a friend who is a professional musician in London attended a different day and time saying it was one of the best performances she had ever heard.) Josep Caballe-Domenech was conducting with guest Conrad Tao at the piano. Fantastic music by one... More

As always, the music of Odyssey: Epic Destinations was amazing. The musicians of the philharmonic make their jobs look easy! Can't remember the name of the piece but the trumpet player solo was outstanding. The disturbing part was between the music. There were 2 "comics" who introduced each piece. They were supposed to be slapstick and silly-I got that. But,... More

The place has a small and homey feeling, but it is anything but average. I think it is an amazing facility and the music to die for! Bravo!

The Philharmonic was a fun experience for this New Year's eve. While I found the 'set list' bizarre and incongruous with a NYE bash, the musicians were talents and the conductor entertaining. I am looking forward to future performances and am intrigued by the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean screening during with the philharmonic will perform the score.

We have been symphony season ticket members for 2 decades. The present serious classics and have several POP music venues of travelling bands - all very, very good. The acoustics are reputed to be some of the best conditions for opera, ballet or symphony in the entire 50 states. it is very comfortable, and parking is close by. We are... More

My wife and I have seen Arrival From Sweden performing the ABBA catalog each of the last three years. We obviously have been totally impressed, or we would not be returning year after year. Not only was Arrival outstanding, as usual, so was the Colorado Springs Philharmonic. A prior post indicated that they were disappointed with the dancing. Well...I remember... More

We purchased season tickets to the Philharmonic Pops this year and only for this series. BIG mistake if we are judging by the first concert of the season. Arrival from Sweden performed ABBA songs. The dancing was terrible, the singing was horrible. My family left at intermission laughing because it was so bad. The philharmonic alone is great. Hopefully the... More

We strive to bring in the best guest artists we can find, and as you mentioned, our musicians are quite good. I hope that you find happiness at our remaining concerts throughout the... More

Going to the Philharmonic is something people should be exposed to at some point during their lifetime. The Colorado Springs Philharmonic performs in a lovely theatre. Colorado Springs is lucky to have the Pikes Peak Center AND the Philharmonic. Do support them if you can!
