Chamber Orchestra of the Springs Returns with New Season, Live Concerts in Colorado Springs | Culture & Leisure


What happens when an orchestra cannot perform together in front of an audience for more than a year?

If it’s the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs, they return with a deluge of soloists, an aggressive new season, and musicians eager to remake music side by side and feel the energy of a crowd.

“It has been a difficult year for the orchestras, and they have come out with flying colors,” said Chamber Orchestra Music Director Thomas Wilson. “There was never a time when we wouldn’t be together on this project, with the music and the orchestra at the heart of it. I’m proud of what the orchestra has done.

The Colorado Springs Philharmonic is still in arbitration with its musicians after a contractual dispute. We don’t know when the organization will be back on stage. Wilson, trumpeter, is also the associate conductor of the Philharmonic Orchestra.

The 2021-2022 House season begins September 12 with “Organ Spectacular VI” at First United Methodist Church. The concert features four organists from the Pikes Peak area, including a world premiere by Roderick Gorby.

The toughest this season, Wilson said, will be “A Celebration of Beethoven” on January 23. Four soloists and more than 100 singers will join the orchestra.

“We have a very diverse and interesting lineup along the way,” Wilson said.

“Our subscribers can stay with us for decades and are unlikely to hear a lot twice. We are always taking new directions.
