The Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra Association, Inc.(GPO) nurtures, inspires, and enriches lives through symphonic music and education. As the oldest symphony in the Rocky Mountain Region, the GPO has come to represent and deliver excellence in musical performance. Performing every year since 1992 in the Union Colony Civic Center’s (UCCC) Monfort Concert Hall enables the GPO to present its music in an acoustically and aesthetically pleasing venue and build on its long legacy of artistic excellence. By serving over four generation of music patrons, the GPO has continually existed as the major force in the cultural and artistic development of the community.
