Denver: Classical Music

Denver, Colorado might be at the heart of the wild, wild West, but that doesn’t mean that it’s unrefined. With some of the most beautiful performance halls in the nation, and more talent in its mile high city limits than a cowboy could corral in his entire lifetime, it’s a fare bet to say that there is likely a classical music performance, of some kind, to be seen every night of the week, 365 days a year. Soloists, trios, quartets, orchestras of brass and strings, choirs of men and women – take your pick. While the tumbleweeds might be tumbling and the rattlesnakes, well, rattling, in Denver, there is never a lack of beautiful classical music to bring a little sophistication to your day.
