Today's Features

  • 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.

  • This coming weekend offers the opportunity to experience a day in the Old West at the 16th annual 1830s Rendezvous at The Fort in Morrison.
    The event is designed to commemorate the American mountain men and frontier women of the Bent’s Fort era, 1833 to 1849. Both days are loaded with entertainment and education for all ages.
    It is presented by the Tesoro Cultural Center, a nonprofit organization created to protect Colorado’s history. The foundation is dedicated to organizing events and educational outreach programs for adults and K-12 students.

  • The StageDoor Theatre in Conifer brings the allure of the playhouse to life with its production of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” opening Sept. 15. This 2004 musical comedy is a spinoff of the 1988 hit movie by the same name. David Yazbek wrote the comical lyrics that accompany the catchy music, and Jeffrey Lane wrote the book. The musical hit Broadway in 2005 and received rave reviews, both stateside and internationally.

  • This weekend, StageDoor Theatre will present two unbeatable bands. Friday night, The Slingers bring to town their country swing and just plain ole’ country tunes that tell quite the stories. Saturday night, Dakota Blonde will charm the audience with its highly addictive and absolutely contagious songs filled with powerful and penetrating lyrics.
