In Friday’s (3/22) Daily Camera (Boulder, Colorado), Kelly Dean Hansen writes, “The Boulder Philharmonic’s 2013-14 season will have a nature theme, music director Michael Butterman announced Friday night at Macky Auditorium during a special event for select patrons and donors. The Philharmonic’s six-concert season will be themed ‘Nature and Music: The Spirit of Boulder.’ In addition to playing five classical symphonic concerts and one family concert featuring film music, the Phil will again collaborate with the Boulder Ballet in the annual ‘Nutcracker’ on Thanksgiving weekend. … The Boulder-based Geological Society of America, in collaboration with the Phil, will commemorate its 125th anniversary by commissioning a new large work from composer Jeffrey Nytch. Nytch’s work, which he calls his First Symphony and is subtitled ‘Formations,’ is the centerpiece of the Phil’s opening concert on Sept. 7. … On Feb. 22, the orchestra plays a concert featuring music from Oscar-winning and nominated films, including the climate change documentary ‘Chasing Ice’ by Boulder photographer James Balog.”
