"Thank you to Vail Resorts EpicPromise for your generous support of the National Repertory Orchestra’s Education & Community Engagement Outreach programs. The NRO is about education, inspiration and Changing Lives Through Music. Each Year, the National Repertory Orchestra creates Education & Community Engagement Outreach programs especially for young listeners. These programs, which are presented at Summit County libraries, camps and preschools, include education programs featuring small groups of NRO musicians explaining their instruments and performing age-appropriate chamber works. In addition, the full orchestra performs a Children’s Concert at the Breckenridge Riverwalk Center. The performance is followed by an “Instrument Petting Zoo,” where youngsters can visit with National Repertory Orchestra musicians and get a hand-on experience with orchestral instruments.
This year, the National Repertory Orchestra completed its 56th season. The orchestra has achieved unparalleled success and today is at the forefront of the nation’s summer music festivals. CEO Doug Adams brings a high level of professionalism to the Orchestra that is reflected in the quality work of our dedicated staff. Music Director and Conductor Carl Topilow will return for his 38th season; it is his vision and virtuosity that brings out the best in our musicians year after year. In addition, this season’s guest conductors are highly skilled at both conducting and teaching, assuring the musicians, as well as the audience, an exceptionally rewarding musical experience. The repertoire is challenging and intense and the results are nothing less than spectacular!
Our legacy is long and rich, and is the result of exceptional foresight, dedication and generous financial support through the years from our Trustees, donors, volunteers and Vail Resorts EpicPromise. On behalf of the musicians, staff and Board of trustees, a heartfelt thank you!"
