About Capitol Hill Concerts
Capitol Hill Concerts offers outstanding concerts in an intimate performance venue. Capitol Hill Concerts is hosted at First Unitarian Society of Denver in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood of Denver, Colorado.
Like most performance venues, we sadly had to close our doors this spring due to COVID-19. We promise to open our doors for live music concerts again as soon as it it safe to do so. In the meantime, we will offer our first virtual concert on October 24th, featuring ZiMBiRA Afro Fusion band! This concert will be free of charge, so that all may attend. Please join our mailing list to receive updates.
- Inspiring community. We strive to inspire and engage audiences through high-caliber and diverse music performances.
- Creating accessible concerts. Capitol Hill Concerts offers affordable and family-friendly concerts that are free for youth 12 & under, with discounted student rates.
- Supporting good work. We will donate a portion of each show’s proceeds to a non-profit organization, chosen in collaboration with our performing artists.

Tips for Listening
The sound quality you hear while watching a musical performance on YouTube will be improved if played back through a good set of speakers or headphones. Laptop, tablet, and smartphone speakers will often not sound very good.
Viewers have several ways to hear higher quality music. Below, you will find a list of options that we know about. This list is not exhaustive. Please contact your provider or device manufacturer with support questions. There are too many variations and combinations for us to be able to provide support!
NOTE: It’s always a good idea to try your listening method of choice before the performance starts. Watch a video that you know has good-quality music and find the method that works best for you.
- Use a quality pair of headphones connected via the device headphone jack.
- Use quality wireless earbuds, headphones, or speakers connected via Bluetooth. The details of how to pair Bluetooth devices with your phone, tablet, or computer will depend on the devices being used.
- NOTE: Bluetooth devices use audio formats called “codecs” to transmit audio between devices. If your device provides a choice of audio codecs, choose a high-quality codec. On commonly available devices, aptX, AAC, LDAC, and LC3 are examples of high-quality codecs.
- Cast YouTube from your computer, phone, or tablet to a smart TV, set top box, or a streaming device, such as a Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire, or Roku. If your TV is connected to a good audio system or sound bar, you will hear the music better, and you will have a better view of the video on the large screen.
