  • Chorale’s holiday concert a slice of the past

    Nothing is more traditional than a slice of warm apple pie in the summer or a slice of sweet pumpkin pie at the holidays. One bite can bring back memories of family picnics or cozy times shared in front of a roaring fire.

    Such is the case with the music of the Evergreen Children’s Chorale. This year’s holiday concert is titled “American Pie,” and it will be a musical extravaganza to bring back memories from throughout time.

  • Glass takes over as exec director of Evergreen Chorale

    The end of 2009 is a new beginning for the Evergreen Chorale, as new executive director Maggie Glass begins her work for the organization.

    Glass, who earned a bachelor’s degree in theater arts from the University of Denver, is no stranger to the theater or performing arts organizations in Colorado. She recently worked with the Central City Opera and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. She was chosen from a pool of 60 applicants.

  • Annual Madrigal event has new holiday flair

    The Evergreen High School music department’s upcoming Madrigal Faire re-creates the spontaneous fun and high spirits of Renaissance England. Laughter rings out amidst the ceremony, sprightly songs accent activities and the jester adds astonishment and wonder at every turn. Hear ye, hear ye! Come to the 23rd annual Madrigal Celebration and experience the essence of the Tudor Court brought to life.

  • Artist’s high-end murals capture the intangible

    Painting human beings is a skill that every artist is required to learn. During their training years, artists may spend hours in front of live models capturing every shape and subtlety of human expression. However, capturing the human soul in a painting is a skill that can’t be taught. Kathryn Petroff, a fine artist and muralist, is skilled at creating portraits that not only bring people to life on canvas but capture the nuances of the human spirit in the process.

  • Orchestral workshop could have life-changing sounds

    As a middle-school clarinetist, I remember setting a timer for my practice sessions. Tooting out squeaky versions of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean,” it seemed to take 90 minutes for those 30 minutes of rehearsal to be complete.

  • Epic production comes to StageDoor

    “Les Miserables” is an epic theatrical production. A grand story that recounts a struggle against adversity in 19th-century France, it has a soaring musical score with some of the most famous songs to come from the stage in the last 30 years. It has an astounding history — the national tour was one of the longest-running musicals of all time. How is it possible to capture all of this epic-ness in the intimate setting of a mountain theater? StageDoor Theatre in Aspen Park is about to show the theater community how.

  • EAA show offers many points of view

    All artists have point of view. Whether expressed with paint, in collage or with the use of clay, this perspective is the unique way in which each artist sees the world through her creative mind’s eye. For this reason, the upcoming Evergreen Artists Association fall show opening on Oct. 30 is aptly named “Points of View.”

  • The art of public service: Sculptor Tom Ware concludes 30 years on board of Evergreen Metro District

    After 30 years on the board of directors of the Evergreen Metro District, the area water provider, Tom Ware has decided to turn in his badge.

    “I just thought 30 was a good, round number,” he explained. Ware was also president of the board for 15 years and spent countless hours researching and negotiating deals to secure lasting water rights for Evergreen water users.

  • ‘Picnic’ gives insight into small towns

    It was once said that, “A small town is one where even a haircut changes the appearance of the whole community.”

    In the case of the Evergreen Players upcoming production of “Picnic,” it isn’t a haircut but the appearance of a stranger that forces a community to question everything it thought was true.

  • Five sisters make ‘Nunsense’ a divine comedy

    What do you get when you take five women who can all sing, dance and act, and dress them up in nuns’ habits? Sounds like the beginning of a joke. And, in fact, it is. Except, instead of these nuns walking into a bar, they are walking into a theater. StageDoor Theatre in Conifer, to be exact. And the joke is on us, because this is precisely the comedic combination that will leave audiences rolling in the aisle when “Nunsense” opens on Sept. 26.
