What do a sweaty-soul band and century-old symphony orchestra have in common? In terms of music, they live on opposite ends of the spectrum. One group thrives on improvisation – the other excels within the lines of a musical score. But what the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra (GPO) and The Burroughs have in common is their passion for music, outstanding performances, and stories that begin in Greeley, Colorado.
Greeley has a rich heritage of championing the arts and cultivating a spirit of creativity. As the oldest regional orchestra in the West, there is no better example of Greeley’s legacy in the arts than the GPO. Representing a new generation of Greeley’s musical heritage, The Burroughs have built the community into their DNA since their start in 2013, branding their sound as “Sweaty Greeley Soul.”
