Music of Resistance


Macky Auditorium Concert Hall
17th Street and University Avenue
Boulder, CO 80309

Explore the intersection of art and politics at this powerful concert. Metropolitan Opera tenor Matthew Plenk and Boulder pianist David Korevaar will join the combined choirs of University of Colorado Boulder and Western Illinois University to perform Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 (which was considered a rejection of Stalin’s totalitarianism), Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy (which praises music as a tonic for aggression) and Benjamin Britten’s Ballad of Heroes (which honors British men who fought in the Spanish Civil War of 1937 and chides those that failed to take a stand against fascism).
