"My CASA was a big part of my life for a long time. She helped me and my sister through hard times by comforting us and being a person we could trust. She took us out to fun places and made us feel loved. Our last outing was to the Symphony in Fort Collins, the best thing that every happened to me! She has shown and told me a lot of fascinating things, this show was one of those, it got my mind on the things that were happening in the real world. Thank you for making this world a better place."

From our “Symphony in the School Program”
" Attending the Thursday Evening Practice Session focuses my enjoyment of Saturday's performance. Our Maestro's direction pulls a wonderful sound from our professionals. I can even hear a difference in the music after his directions. "
Attended an Open Rehearsal
" We did a lot of hand holding and smiling during and after the performance. We made eye contact throughout the entire performance and it was like soul traveling. "

B Sharp participant who attended concerts last Season
" I am writing to thank you for paying for Timnath Elementary’s 4th and 5th grade field trip. I enjoyed everything, but what I admired most was the performance of the “Thrill of the Orchestra” and how the Symphony told about some of the history of the songs. One of my personal favorites of the songs was “Carmen.” I really like the expression or life of the song. In other works I like the “color,” like what Wes Kenney said to us. Once again, thank you for paying for the symphony, the bus ride, and everything else I mentioned. I had a breath taking experience. Thank you! "
Sincerely, part of your awe-inspired audience, RAYMOND
Attended our 2016 Youth Education Series Concert
" This performance last evening was spectacular! The Classical Symphony was played with spirit and contrast between movements. The violin concerto was played with great intensity and strength and virtuosity by both the soloist and the orchestra. I loved being introduced to the melodic and dance-like Bizet Symphony in C. The oboe solo was fantastic; when does this oboist take a breath! "
