As we move into the busy Spring concert season I want to share details on a few of the many Muséik-driven concerts on the calendar. Of course, this is just a sample of the many concerts and programs where you might find us this spring. But I hope it gives an idea of what types of projects we are working on and - maybe - gives you an opportunity to experience a Muséik-driven show your self.
True Concord Orchestra and Chorus (Tuscon, AZ) presents Jocelyn Hagen's "The Notebooks or Leonardo DaVinci". This is actually the second time this ensemble will present this remarkable work.

In addition to being a premiere performance of this version of the work, the Greeley Phil plans to present the multimedia across three screens, with surround sound audio SFX and live event scenting. This is a performance not to be missed!
