The UCCC proudly hosts the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra. The GPO is a professional orchestra that hires musicians from all over Colorado. Every orchestra member has auditioned and been contracted by the Greeley Philharmonic. Over 70% of our orchestra members hold a Master’s Degree or higher, and many of our musicians have made successful careers performing for the GPO and other professional orchestras throughout the Front Range and beyond. The GPO is one of only a few orchestras in the United States today to reach the elite status of operating for over a century. It shares this accomplishment in cities much larger than Greeley.
