“We’re very fortunate in Boulder to have the College of Music and the Boulder Phil. Even before my husband and I began attending Takács concerts, we enjoyed the CU Symphony and faculty recitals—all told, an incredible resource in our own backyard, including many free performances. I’m proud that our community has the College of Music and I’m happy to support it in any way I can.”
