Baseball fever hit Fort Collins this fall when the Colorado Rockies made it to the National League division series to compete against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Fort Collins Symphony encouraged fans to show their support for both the Colorado Rockies and the Symphony by wearing purple to a free, open rehearsal on October 4 before the orchestra’s season-opening all-Bern­stein concert later that week. Music Director and baseball fan Wes Kenney (left, in baseball cap and purple shirt) led the orchestra’s 80 musicians, many of whom were also wearing Rockies apparel. Fun was had by all at the open rehearsal that the orchestra said “promoted the four Bs: Bernstein, Baseball, and Buffy Baggott”—the latter a mezzo-soprano featured in the concert.
