The Colorado Springs Philharmonic has been an amazing partner over the years, performing on July 5th in weather conditions that have been truly awful at times. “In the 31 years of our association, the concert has only been cancelled because of weather twice. That record is certainly the result of the orchestra’s willingness to go above and beyond what’s required,” Spradling said. More at: www.csphilharmonic.org/about-us
