The Boulder Phil and the City of Boulder Open Space & Mountain Parks (OSMP) have created an ongoing “Nature & Music” collaboration to connect community members with the natural world through music. This inventive partnership includes guided musical hikes, hosted by OSMP naturalist Dave Sutherland, designed to complement specific works to be performed by the Boulder Phil. The hikes are free and open to the public.

Saturday, April 22, 9:30 – 11:30 AM   EARTH DAY!

On April 22, the Boulder Phil will perform Ottorino Respighi’s stirring composition The Pines of Rome as part of our Season Finale concert. Get a sneak peek of the music ahead of the concert, and learn amazing stuff about the Pines of Boulder with Open Space and Mountain Parks naturalist Dave Sutherland. We’ll use the music as a starting point to explore our local ponderosa pines: we will look for forest animals, find spectacular spring wildflowers, and learn how fire and pine beetles shape the lives of trees. Meet at the Lehigh Street entrance to Shanahan Ridge (map search 1903 Lehigh in Boulder, where Lehigh and Lafayette Streets intersect).
