  • Madrigal Faire is Saturday at EHS

    Many holiday traditions in the U.S. are tinged with a taste of Merry Ole’ England.

What better way to ring in the holidays than immersing yourself in the grand tradition of King Henry’s Renaissance court at the 24th annual Madrigal Marketplace and Faire presented by the Evergreen High School Performing Arts Department.

  • Chorale’s holiday concert addresses big questions

    What are bells on bobtails? Why are the lords a-leaping? What will it take to have peace on Earth and goodwill toward all people? These questions arise each year at the holiday season. Some take a lighthearted look at the intricacies of holiday caroling, and others address more serious issues that world leaders and everyday citizens have struggled with for years. This year, the Evergreen Children’s Chorale is taking on all of these questions in song at its annual holiday concert “Songs of Hope.”

  • Event highlights Lariat Loop’s artistic inspirations

    For as long as there have been cars trusty enough to chug up the mountains, artists have ventured around the Lariat Loop hoping to capture that elusive sunset reflecting in Bear Creek or the first aspen turning to gold near Buffalo Bill’s grave.

    The Lariat Loop is a 40-mile scenic circle developed in the 1920s to help Coloradans experience the mountains in proximity to Denver. To celebrate the anniversary of the Loop’s designation as a National Scenic Byway, on Oct. 17 the Loop’s Heritage Alliance will host the Lariat Loop Art Bistro.
