Classical Music Series

The Highlands Ranch Cultural Affairs Association is proud to present a three-part series of classical music at The Highlands Ranch Historic Mansion. Each evening will include an hour's open house for self-guided Mansion tours. The performances are in the Mansion's beautiful, historic solarium.

October 10: Unsung Voices

While women have always been a major part of the development of music, their contributions have historically been overlooked in terms of playing, composing, and performing.  We will explore women’s contributions in the string quartet genre, which has long served as the perfect vehicle for composers in terms of beauty, simplicity, voicing, harmony, and expressiveness

Time: Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; performance begins at 6:30 p.m.
Location: Highlands Ranch Mansion; 9500 E. Gateway Drive, Highlands Ranch, CO 80126
Tickets: $25

November 7: Transfigured Night

The use of 6 string instruments (2 violins, 2 violas, 2 cellos) was championed by composers such as Brahms and Tchaikovsky for the endless possibilities of expression and harmonic richness.  You can hear this influence in Arnold Schoenberg’s ultra-romantic depiction of Richard Dehmels poem “Verklärte Nacht”, which is the centerpiece of this chamber music concert.  Balancing out the program is a charming and fun work for the same group of instruments by the popular composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

Time: Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; performance begins at 6:30 p.m.
Location: Highlands Ranch Mansion; 9500 E. Gateway Drive, Highlands Ranch, CO 80126

Time: Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; performance begins at 6:30 p.m.
