Bringing Music to Life Presents 2018 Instrument Drive

March 5-17 

Learning to play an instrument can have a profound, positive impact on a child, teaching valuable life skills and boosting confidence and self-esteem.  And that instrument you have at home can help make it happen. 
 
From March 5th through the 17th, Bringing Music to Life will hold the 2018 Instrument Drive, collecting donations of gently-used band and orchestra instruments that will be repaired and awarded to deserving music programs throughout the state.  
  
 Complete information about the upcoming drive is available at www.bringmusic.org.

ECO is seeking a new BOARD MEMBER with ties to EVERGREEN’S BUSINESS COMMUNITY

The Evergreen Chamber Orchestra has an opening on their Board of Directors.  ECO’s Board is comprised of 9-10 community and orchestra members who share a love of classical music, and enjoy working with ECO’s Music Director Bill Hill (Principal Timpanist and Composer of the Colorado Symphony as well as an amazing jazz musician/composer) to promote the orchestra’s mission.  ECO has flourished the past 3 years under Bill and the Board’s leadership, and has more than doubled their annual concerts, recitals and fundraisers in the foothills and western Denver.

We are seeking a member of Evergreen’s business community to help spread the word about our wonderful orchestra and connect ECO with local corporate sponsors.  If you’d like to find out more about this opportunity, please contact Julia Barrett MD, President of ECO’s Board of Directors (and ECO violinist) at jbarrettviolin@gmail.com.

ECO’s Prelude to Spring Concerts

On March 11 and 13 we proudly present ECO’s Concertmaster Kathy Thayer playing Mozart’s Concerto #3 in G Major for violin and orchestra. These concerts also feature the beautiful and flashy Waltz from Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony #1. You might be interested to know that Schubert and Mendelssohn composed their first symphonies as teenagers. Like the young Mozart, the talent and maturity of their prodigious genius is completely apparent in these early works.
