The GPO is a professional orchestra hiring 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.
108 Years of Excellence
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 ours. The GPO believes that the quest for beautiful music was a hallmark of those who settled our area, and so it remains today.
The Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra: A Century of Musical Magic, 1911-2011
This award-winning book, the work of a committee of seven authors to help celebrate the GPO’s century season, tells the story of how this remarkable musical organization has played a central role in making Greeley the city of music that it is today.

The Union Colony Civic Center is northern Colorado’s premier performing arts venue, and is proudly owned and operated by the City of Greeley. The UCCC is home to two performance venues, Monfort Concert Hall, which seats 1,686 and Hensel Phelps Theatre, which seats 214.
“We carry within our minds the ability to paint beautiful pictures and create a better world, all of which can be unlocked while sitting and listening to music in a darkened auditorium.”
