Music and architecture have many things in common – rhythm, texture, harmony, proportion, dynamics – and composers and architects throughout the ages have often approached their work in similar ways. Join us for the 2019 Discovery Concert as the Boulder Philharmonic and special guests explore the intersection between sounds and structures, featuring orchestral works by Bach, Britten, Mussorgsky, Ives, and more.
