Sensational Colorado Music Festival at the Dairy Arts Center

The Dairy Arts Center is thrilled to be partnering with the Colorado Music Festival in bringing new creativity in music to Boulder featuring the national cello sensation Joshua Roman.

Joshua has created three unique concert experiences that will be presented in our Gordon Gamm Theater on three consecutive Saturdays in July.

“we do it to one another”
Poetry in Performance
Saturday, July 16 at 7:30pm

CMF Creative Partner and Senior TED Fellow Joshua Roman wrote “we do it to one another” to put music to Tracy K. Smith’s 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of poetry, Life on Mars. Also on the program this evening is the acclaimed soprano Jessica Rivera and Oliver Messiaen’s ethereally beautiful Quartet for the End of Time.

BLACKBIRD, FLY
A concert for Voice, Body, and Strings
Saturday, July 23 at 7:30pm

BLACKBIRD, FLY weaves together an enduring tapestry of movement, narrative, music and Haitian folklore to engage audiences in dialog about critical questions of our time. This intimate duet between two preeminent sons of Haitian immigrants — composer/violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain and arts activist/spoken word artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph — delves into the universal themes of tolerance and inclusion.This performance will be followed by a post-concert talk led by Motus Theater’s Norma Johnson.

Diecterliebe * Craigslistlieder * Songs
Featuring Gabriel Kahane, piano and voice
Saturday, July 30 at 7:30pm

In this unusual performance, songwriter and composer Gabriel Kahane accompanies himself in Schumann’s monumental cycle Dichterliebe, drawing connections between the romantic German song tradition of the nineteenth century and the singer-songwriter tradition of contemporary American pop music. In addition, Kahane will perform his eight popular irreverent yet poignant song settings of classified ads from Craigslist. To round out the program, Gabriel will draw on songs from his latest LP, The Ambassador, hailed by Rolling Stone as “one of the year’s very best albums”.
