Today's Features

  • It’s Christmas time again, and nothing is more symbolic of the season than the Evergreen Chorale’s magical holiday show.
    This weekend, the chorale will present “A Ceremony of Carols: A Tapestry of Holiday Music for Choir, Harp, Piano and Flute.” Both performances will be held at churches – Central Presbyterian Church in Denver on Friday and Rockland Community Church in Genesee on Sunday — embellishing the delivery of old time carols and new.

  • The StageDoor Theatre has the perfect venue to swing open the gates of Christmas fun and fantasy. This Friday night, the Conifer theater will begin its nine-day run with Rogers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.” This revised rendition of the beloved fairytale will easily engage the audience with more clever lines than ever before. This time, it’s the Senior Company, ages 14 to 18, taking the stage with a cast of 33.
    Director/playwright Kelly McAllister returns to StageDoor to direct this dazzling performance.

  • Center for the Arts Evergreen is now in full swing for the holiday season. On Friday, the center hosted its opening Holiday Show and Gift Shop reception. The gallery morphed into a jubilant showcase of one-of-a-kind handmade gifts and seasonal items from both Evergreen and Front Range artists. The show will be open until Dec. 29, giving everyone a chance to shop even after Christmas.

  • The Evergreen Chorale will continue its Shining Stars Concert Series this weekend with two inspiring presentations. The series, a fund-raiser for the Chorale, helps guarantee its  mission “to provide a high-quality performing arts venue in the mountain community.”

  • Pueblo-based artist Philip J. Spanier knows no bounds. As a Picasso-esque painter, surrealist, relief artist, sculptor and published author, Spanier’s work is now at Epic Estate Treasures in downtown Evergreen.

    Among this self-taught artist’s creations is his second sculpture of Liberace. The first was presented and sold to Liberace when Spanier met him in person. He also met Paul McCartney and “wowed” him with his sculpture of the Beatles.

  • Conifer’s Venue Theatre opens Friday with the favored musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” The 1967 film of the same name was an immediate success and eventually made it to Broadway in 2002, winning six Tony Awards, including best musical. The story, which takes place in the 1920s, was quite the learning experience for the all high school student cast. Many of the props had never been seen before, such as the typewriter and flapper-style period costuming.

  • Of all the musical attractions found in this mountain community, Boogie at the Barn remains a favorite. This past September saw the completion of the 2017 Boogie dance schedule, and as always it was successfully attended and held in high regard by all.
    This particular event honored the Alpine Rescue Team, which is dedicated to saving lives through search, rescue, and mountain safety education. All funds raised after cost went to the rescue team. Subject2Change kicked off the music, with Something Underground following.

  • Looking for an inspiring venture for the day? Evergreen resident Steve Sonnen, owner of Mirada Fine Art gallery, guarantees you’ll discover impactful and even enchanting works of art at his gallery, located in Indian Hills. In 2009, few galleries were considering an opening. In fact, most were closing. But in November of that year, Mirada Fine Art gallery transformed from Tesoro’s home furnishings shop to a work of art in itself.

  • Karen Belmont, owner of Go Paint!, pretty much never stops. Just one weekend after the Evergreen Enchanted Faeries Festival, she hosted another evening of go-paint-a-pachyderm. The Paint an Elephant for Conservation project was a fund-raiser for the Katie Adamson Conservation Fund, with half of the proceeds dedicated to saving pachyderms in Nepal and Tanzania. This is the second of such, with rhinos the focus of the first event last May.

  • Bravo! That’s the word that came to mind Friday  night as I sat in rapt attention watching “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” at Center Stage.
    The Evergreen Chorale opened the show on Sept. 15 and it will run through Oct. 8. The stage was filled to capacity with 56 singing actors and seven children, which included choir members lining the aisles of the theatre.
