Welcome to the Broomfield Symphony Orchestra Website!
Celebrating 32 years as the Orchestra within Broomfield.
The Broomfield Symphony is a friendly, lively and ambitious group of musicians that has been performing in Broomfield since 1982 (previously the Broomfield Civic Orchestra) and continues to receive accolades. Our continuing mission is to present high-quality musical performances that appeal to diverse audiences, and to promote a taste for cultural excellence in our community.
The Broomfield Symphony Orchestra is currently enjoying a summer vacation! However our work doesn't stop. You will find us:
- June 22nd & 23rd Broomfield Civic Orchestra Play-In: Click here to download the application.

We will be back in the fall with our opening concert of the season on October 18th, 2013 at the Broomfield Auditorium. This concert will feature Katie Mahan performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 popularly known as the "Emperor Concerto". Tickets will go on sale later in the summer. This concert is likely to be a sell-out success so make sure you book your seats early!
We look forward to seeing new and returning audience members at each of our concerts next season.
Our previous concert: A Night in Vienna, Season Finale, May 18th 2013 at the Broomfield Auditorium
The final concert of the 2012-2013 season transported our audience to a Night of waltzes, polkas, and songs from Vienna. The concert featured the musical talents of our 2013 Youth Concerto Competition winners Eloise Hodges, violin, and Andrew Peeples, cello, along with guest vocalist Lee Ann Scherlong, all conducted by Broomfield Symphony Music Director David Brussel.
Here is what one concert-goer took the time to send to us after our Thursday evening performance:
GREAT MUSIC played by SKILLED MUSICIANS - DESERVES AN AUDIENCE
One of the "best kept secrets" in Broomfield, CO is the Broomfield Symphony. As a retired musician, I've had the pleasure of hearing MANY fine orchestras. Broomfield Symphony is one of the finest Community Orchestras in the country. I attended their latest offering - A NIGHT IN VIENNA - and I am compelled to report that this was worthy of the great music of that beautiful city in Austria.
The melodies of Strauss & Lehar came to elegant life once again under the masterful baton of David Brussel. The orchestra, all playing for the pure joy of the music, navigated through the tricky passages with percussion bangs & pops, tempo hesitations, accelerandos, rallentandos etc. in the true Strauss style.
If you've ever listened to the famous New Year's Eve presentations from Vienna; last night's performance was equally exhilarating. I particularly enjoy this music as a great memory of my visit to Vienna and enjoying a concert at the "Vienna Kursalon." After last night's concert, I had an overpowering craving for a "Sacher Torte."
YOU ARE IN LUCK! You can still get a ticket to experience this wonderful concert. The "encore" performance is Saturday evening, 7:00 PM at the Broomfield Auditorium (located next to the Broomfield Library.)
This is one concert you simply MUST attend! - - - - - - - - -Congratulations on an OUTSTANDING performance.
ONE MORE ACCOLADE!! The outstanding soloists from last night's concert:
Mezzo-Soprano Lee Ann Scherlong was delightful as she presented "Velia" - (The Merry Widow) by Franz Lehar and "Vienna, City of My Dreams" by Rudolf Sieczyński.
Two soloists, winners of the BSO Youth Concerto Competition, Violinist Eloise Hodges and Cellist Andrew Peeples presented AMAZING performances. Their technique and playing skills were thrilling to watch and hear.
Another excellent aspect of what BSO offers to the community.
Now you know you MUST attend the concert. DON'T MISS THIS!!
