BOULDER, Colo. – For the third year, the City of Boulder presents Arts in the Park, a program showcasing a vibrant blend of arts and cultural performances. Arts in the Park performances will take place at the Glen Huntington Bandshell in the city’s Civic Area and showcase talent from the Boulder Ballet, Boulder Symphony and Boulder Opera.
This year’s Arts in the Park performing arts series will include four performances by three Boulder-based arts organizations:
- Boulder Ballet – Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3
- Boulder Symphony – Tuesday, July 4
- Boulder Opera – Saturday, July 29
Boulder Ballet’s mixed repertoire program will feature a collection of short works that showcase the expansive range of ballet. The Boulder Symphony will perform symphonic classics, from Copland to William Tell, Star Wars music by John Williams, Gregory T.S. Walker’s music for Rapper and Orchestra, and the 1812 Overture. Boulder Opera’s family-friendly concert will feature some of the city’s most talented rising artists, performing classic arias and scenes from Das Rheingold, Die Walkure, Siegfried and Gotterdammerung.
Colorado-based artist Jerod Barker is also back for the third year to design the artwork for this year’s Arts in the Park poster.
