In a grand celebratory evening of music in UCCS’ new Ent Center for the Arts, three musical powerhouses of our community--the Chamber Orchestra, Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble and the Colorado Springs Chorale--give one of the first performances in our city’s new music venue. Conductor Deborah Teske leads the combined forces for Handel’s exuberant Dixit Dominus
and Thomas Wilson conducts Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music
and Beethoven’s Ode to Joy. What better way to celebrate new musical possibilities for our great city?
