Sounds of Lyons is a two-day music festival founded and directed by violinist and Lyons resident, MinTze Wu. Rooted with the belief that music transcends boundaries of genre, class, tradition, and cultures, the festival strives to make the finest music accessible and attainable to every individual. Celebrating its second season, Sounds of Lyons has gathered attention in the Front Range with its bold, innovative, and experimental style of presenting classical music.
This season includes “Metamorphosis”, excerpts of Ovid interlaced with impressionist music of Ravel and Szymanowski; “The Legendary”, featuring Sage Quartet and renown clarinetist Daniel Silver in Brahms Clarinet Quintet and Beethoven String Quartet op.127; and “Passage”, a 70-minute musical journey meandering through Bach’s Second Violin Partita, Arvo Pärt’s illuminatingly beautiful music, and improvisation on Irish traditional music. The three programs are presented in three characteristically different venues: the folky Rogers Hall, the intimate Lyons Community Church, and the elegant Wildflower Pavilion situated right against the canyon and the St. Vrain River. The festival will take place on June 5 & 6, in conjunction with Lyons Studio Tour that simultaneously features many local artists and their works. The weekend promises to be a time of dazzling creativity in Lyons.
