COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – For the first time since February 2020, CSPO musicians will present a full program with a full orchestra.
The group will return to the stage on August 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church located at 420 N Nevada Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80903.
“We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish on our own, but we need your support to make this full reunion possible,” said trombonist Jeremy Van Hoy. “Our goal is for this concert to be the culmination of these summer presentations with the whole orchestra finally reunited!”
The concert is free and open to the public, but the CSPO is asking for donations so that the the musicians (who are in the middle of a labor dispute) can be compensated in full. A GoFundMe has been created in the hope of raising $ 35,000.
To date, the group has raised nearly $ 38,000.
