From the Board President

On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Fort Collins Symphony. Now in our 71st year, your orchestra has been, and continues to be, a vital and vibrant part of our Northern Colorado arts community. As with most other regional performing arts organizations, COVID-19 kept us from completing our 70th season repertoire. Yet in spite of the pandemic–and through the exceptional dedication of our talented musicians, Maestro Wes Kenney, Executive Director Mary Kopco, the FCS leadership, and staff–this orchestra has continued to bring live classical music to our community. We kept the music alive with concerts at the Holiday Twin Drive-In, the Gardens on Spring Creek, “Tiny Concert” podcasts, small backyard performances, and October and holiday concert streaming videos. We will continue to adapt as we actively seek opportunities to bring live classical music to you in 2021 and beyond. Stay tuned!

Walt Elish, President
FCS Board of Directors
