Colorado Symphony

The Colorado Symphony makes the Rocky Mountain region an exciting place to live, work and raise families. Established in 1989 as the successor to the Denver Symphony, the Colorado Symphony is the region’s only full-time professional orchestra. 

Boettcher Concert Hall

Boettcher Concert Hall is located in the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Situated on a four-block, 12-acre site, the complex is the largest arts center in the world, featuring 10 performance spaces connected by an 80-foot-tall glass roof. With 80 percent of the 2,634 seats within 65 feet of the stage, Boettcher Concert Hall is the nation’s first symphony hall in the round designed to place the audience close to the stage for a unique experience.
