Join us on October 25th at 7pm as multi-instrumentalist, composer, and trumpet master, Nicholas Payton, will be live in concert with the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, featuring two masterworks rarely encountered in the concert hall: “Sketches of Spain” and “Black American Symphony” (United States premiere). Both works highlight the contribution of Black American music to the world, here through the lens of symphonic music. “Sketches of Spain”– the renowned 1960 concept album by Miles Davis and Gil Evans — explores and reinterprets the melodies, harmonies, and rhythms of Spain.

Free tickets for CC Students, Staff, and Faculty are available at the Worner Desk, (one per CC ID, supply limited).

Buses will be transporting students, staff, and faculty from Armstrong starting at 6pm.

The concert is produced by Colorado College under the auspices of the Colorado College Africana Intellectual Project and Office of Performing Arts.
