  • 2009 has been filled with celebrations of Evergreen’s sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary. The Evergreen Chorale’s holiday concert, 150 Years of Holiday Music in Evergreen, is a fitting way to wrap up a year of merriment in honor of our historic mountain community.

    “We wanted to create a program packed with pieces that have been performed in Evergreen throughout its 150-year history,” said Laurie Romberg, the Chorale’s publicity manager.

  • Music and merriment return to Center/Stage in Evergreen with the Baroque Folke concert at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 20.

    This eight-member consort of friends performs on early instruments, including recorder, viola da gamba, krummhorn, cornamuse and harpsichord, as well as singing in vocal ensembles. The program mingles carols from many countries with instrumental pieces, all chosen to reflect the spirit of December holidays.

     

    Performers include Ann and Mike Moore, Sally Ochsner, Bob Baldwin, Paul Ahlquist, Rebecca Beshore, Hopi Moore-Sargent and Ruth Harvey.

  • Joyful carols, solemn chant and jubilant works for period instruments will combine to create a glorious celebration of the season when the Baroque Folke performs at Center/Stage on Dec. 20. This always-popular annual free concert features music performed on period instruments by an eight-member consort of friends.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • “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.

  • 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.”
