In its 25th season, the Littleton Symphony Orchestra, conducted
by Jurgen de Lemos, is playing a series featuring Russian
Masterworks. On March 27, the orchestra’s conductor, who is also
principal cellist with the Colorado Symphony, will be featured
soloist and his CSO colleague, associate conductor Scott O’Neill
will be guest conductor.
On the program: Edward Elgar’s “Cello Concerto in e-minor, Opus
85;” Rimsky Korsakov’s “Russian Easter Overture” and Tchiakovsky’s
“Swan Lake Suite.”
Jurgen de Lemos is a native of Leipzig, Germany, who followed
musical studies in Germany and France and at Julliard in New York
with four years as the youngest member of the New York Philharmonic
Orchestra under Leonard Bernstein. In 1968, he was invited to join
the Denver Symphony Orchestra as principal cellist, a position he
has held for four decades as the orchestra became the Colorado
Symphony. He will retire from the Colorado Symphony in June, but
will continue as artistic director/conductor of the Littleton
Symphony, which he joined in 1990, building it to its present size
and skill level.
The Littleton Symphony began as a 12-member string ensemble in
1984, adding wind, brass and more strings the next year to become
the Littleton Chamber Orchestra. When de Lemos joined the group in
1990, it grew to a full orchestra, with a concert season, performed
at Littleton United Methodist Church and school and community
