We hope that you, like us, are as excited about The Colorado Springs Philharmonic’s Summer Symphony Series, which begins next Wednesday, June 26 in Mountain Shadows Park at 6 p.m. with the Colorado Springs Together concert to commemorate the 1-year anniversary of the Waldo Canyon Fire:

…Colorado Springs Together features the Flying W Wranglers, the Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale, and VIP guests in an evening created to celebrate brave acts and a community rising together. The concert is made possible through its namesake, Colorado Springs Together, an organization founded to lead wildfire recovery efforts.

Just as exciting is the return of the Indepdence Day concert July 4 in Memorial Park. Fireworks or no, these concerts have long been of the best ways to get together for a community-wide picnic and enjoy the amazing Colorado summers and take our minds of what have been a trying couple of summers.

Full summer Philharmonic lineup HERE.

We hope to see you there!
