Rufus Wainwright, Colorado Symphony at Boettcher Concert Hall (photos, review)

Rufus Wainwright has few creative boundaries. In addition to his music, the prolific songwriter has acting credits, most notably in “The Aviator” (2004). Last month he finished recording his first French opera with the BBC Orchestra, "Prima Donna." And on Wednesday, he extended that creativity to the full force of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra at Boettcher Concert Hall, where he gave fans a taste of his opera.

Gregory Alan Isakov and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra at Boettcher Concert Hall, 11-8-13 (review)

The Colorado Symphony Orchestra and Gregory Alan Isakov are, in that order, my two favorite local music acts. For a couple of years now, I've been quite content to alternate my appreciation of their talents, taking in Isakov’s small, intimate records in my car and the orchestra’s large classics in the flesh, over multiple Friday nights at Boettcher Concert Hall.
