Mile high Collaborative: Fountain of Youth

Coming to Boettcher Concert Hall on September 24th. 
Central City Opera, Denver Young Artists Orchestra, and Performing Arts Academy unite for a collaborative performance celebrating talented young orchestral musicians and chorus with vocal soloists.

Delight in a special collaborative kick off to the Denver Young Artists Orchestra (DYAO) concert season featuring the debut for new Music Director, Wilbur Lin, at Boettcher Concert Hall on September 24, 2023. Musicians from Central City Opera, Denver Young Artists Orchestra and the Performing Arts Academy will unite for Mile High Collaborative: Fountain of Youth.

In the second half, audiences will hear operatic and Broadway favorites from Bernstein to Puccini, showcasing the breadth of what instrumental and vocal music can do when combined.

Central City Opera’s soloists and chorus members will contribute their powerful voices to the performance. Central City Opera and DYAO have also partnered with the Performing Arts Academy to provide the chorus for this concert event. The chorus will feature students from various local high schools.
