2016-2017 Season: Inspirations

Hey Sphere Fans!

Welcome to Sphere’s Sixth Season, Inspirations!

September: It’s About Time

Time plays a prominent role in our lives. We keep track of the minutes, hours and days (Poulenc’s Nocturnes). We mark the passage of time when seasons change (Vivaldi’s Autumn), years end, and our birthdays come around (When I’m 64). Our memories and histories let us recall the past (Que Tiempo Aquel; For the Longest Time). We measure time in music in order to have rhythm and tempo (Blue Rondo a la Turk). Sphere offers a sampling of music from many genres and eras that was influenced by the concept of time.

Advance ticket prices are $20/adults, $15/seniors and $5/student, available on Brown Paper Tickets. Prices go up by $2 at the door, so order your tickets now!

October: Dreams and Hallucinations

Whether during sleep or while staring off into the distance, dreams let the mind wander freely. The dreaming mind can lead an artist to find new possibilities the conscious brain could not. The dream-inspired music on this program might depict an imagined story line or the surreal setting of a hallucination.

October 18th – 12:00pm – Boulder Public Library, Boulder, CO

October 22nd – 7:30pm– D.L. Parsons Theatre at the Northglenn Recreation Center, Northglenn, CO – Tickets

October 23rd – 2:00pm – Studios at Overland Crossing, Denver, CO – Tickets 


February: Relationships

An artist’s relationships are a rich source of inspiration. From connections with those they love and cherish — and with those they don’t — an artist can find boundless experience and emotion to shape their creations.  In this concert we explore music inspired by various types of human relationships.

February 18th – 7:30pm – Studios at Overland Crossing, Denver, CO – Tickets

February 19th – 2:00pm – Broomfield Auditorium, Broomfield CO – Tickets 

February 22nd – 2:00pm – Dairy Arts Center, Boulder, CO
