Today's Features

  • 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Italian-American composer Gian Carlo Menotti and the 60th anniversary of his classic Christmas opera “Amahl and the Night Visitors.”

  • For 25 years, the music students of Evergreen High School have presented the annual Madrigal event. The celebration began many years ago as a Madrigal dinner, and over the years has evolved into a Madrigal Marketplace and Faire. On Saturday, Dec. 3, visitors can enjoy strolling minstrels, jugglers and a taste of Jolly Olde England to kick off the holiday season.

  • Once they have acquired the skills of their trade, artists set out on a path to discover the subject matter that stirs their artistic souls. For Santa Fe-based artist Jill Shwaiko, it wasn’t until after her formal education was complete that she stumbled upon the images that inspire and inform her work — primitive petroglyphs of bighorn sheep.

  • Every December, members of the Evergreen Children’s Chorale gather at Center/Stage to present a show filled with holiday cheer. Each performance ends with ECC alumni joining the Chorale for the annual alumni number, “A Simple Song of Peace.” In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the ECC has reached out to its alumni to not only perform the final number this year, but to help create the show.

  • After looking for the missing hiker in the deep woods for some 32 hours, the searchers had to admit that chances of finding the 74-year-old father and retired insurance executive alive appeared to be approaching zero.

     

    About 60 people were on the ground looking. It was 5:30 p.m. and about to get dark in an hour, meaning the search was getting desperate. Not a single reliable trace of the 5-foot-7, 195-pound outdoorsman had been identified.

  • Members of American Legion Post 2001 of Evergreen celebrated Veterans Day on Saturday, Nov. 12, by dedicating the walkway of brick pavers engraved with the names of those who have served the country's armed forces.

    About 75 people turned out to witness completion of the final phase of a building process that began when legion members decided to build the Veterans and Service Members Commemorative Walk in 2007 in Buchanan Park.

  • The Foothills chapter of the National Charity League spent a Saturday afternoon recently trying to debunk some of the mysteries of car maintenance for a half dozen moms and their teenage daughters.

    The group gathered at Lexota in El Rancho to get two hours of car know-how such as how brakes work, how to check oil and brake fluid, how to change a tire, and how to jump a car battery.

  • Art and dance have always been a part of Sarah Wallace Scott’s life. The Evergreen native grew up studying ballet and theater but ultimately found her life’s work in visual art. It is no surprise that this emerging artist leapt at the chance to erase the boundaries between visual and performing art. Her work will be featured this month in a unique collaboration between the resident artists of Denver’s Redline Gallery and Ballet Nouveau Colorado.

  • Evergreen resident and first-time novelist Jim Ament readily admits that his inaugural effort, “Waiting for Zoe,” isn’t shaped to fit a standard literary mold.

  • My personal style of building custom projects and homes most often has meant an immediate immersement in family matters, followed by a lifetime of friendship. My friendship with Virginia Danver Schulte (May 16, 1946 – Oct. 21, 2011) commenced with a jump-start.
