In the warm sanctuary of First United Methodist Church, Pikes Peak Philharmonic concerts offer intimate musical experiences, and pre-concert lectures presented by Maestro Luciano Silvestri provide historical and musical context that enriches the work. The Pikes Peak Philharmonic’s current season, themed “An Afternoon at the Ballet,” has seen some well loved pieces from well loved composers, but this weekend’s performance will be a special treat. In addition to playing music by Prokofiev and Saint-Saens, the orchestra will be joined by the Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale for Sartori and Quarantotto’s “Con te partirò” (originally performed by Andrea Bocelli) in a moving collaboration. What’s more, Emma Johnson, the winner of the Pikes Peak Philharmonic’s annual youth concerto competition, will be a featured performer.
