  • A tapestry of voices

    Some music fans might think that voices singing alone on stage amount to nothing more than a choir.

     

    But when Mix, an award-winning a capella group at the University of Colorado Denver, performs an Adele cover song, all preconceptions about vocal music go out the window.

    Choir music this ain’t. 

    In the middle of it all is singer-songwriter Vanessa Spear, a 2008 graduate of Chatfield High School.

  • Diamond jubilee: Jefferson Symphony celebrating 60 years

    The Jefferson Symphony Orchestra will soon celebrate its 60th anniversary concert season.

    And while many organizations reach similar milestones, this one is special to JSO, according to longtime violinist and spokeswoman Karen Pring. That’s because — save for a few paid employees — the group is made up solely of volunteers.

  • Gone country

    Get ready, music fans, because country music legend Charlie Daniels is going to show you how it’s done.

  • Littleton Fine Arts Guild turning 50

    The Littleton Fine Arts Guild is celebrating its 50th anniversary this month with exhibits and events at the historic Depot Art Center.

     

    The guild formed in 1962 as a place for community members to meet weekly and learn to paint. Membership in the guild is now open to all Littleton adults, pending approval of artwork by a panel of current members.

  • ‘Tommy’ turns arts center into visual, audio feast

    Violent strobes of color, energized dance and a backdrop of renowned psychedelic rock saturate the senses in the Littleton Town Hall Arts Center’s production of “Tommy,” a nearly overwhelming contrast to the title character’s catatonic state.

  • Photographers point lenses locally and globally

    Littleton’s annual Eye of the Camera contest drew photos from as near as Ketring Lake and as far as Azerbaijan.

  • Town Hall Arts Center receives grant

    The board of directors for the Littleton Town Hall Arts Center announced that the organization has received a grant of $10,000 from Colorado Creative Industries and the National Endowment for the Arts.

  • Event highlights Lariat Loop’s artistic inspirations

    For as long as there have been cars trusty enough to chug up the mountains, artists have ventured around the Lariat Loop hoping to capture that elusive sunset reflecting in Bear Creek or the first aspen turning to gold near Buffalo Bill’s grave.

    The Lariat Loop is a 40-mile scenic circle developed in the 1920s to help Coloradans experience the mountains in proximity to Denver. To celebrate the anniversary of the Loop’s designation as a National Scenic Byway, on Oct. 17 the Loop’s Heritage Alliance will host the Lariat Loop Art Bistro.

  • It takes two to tango

    Soaring vocals paired with fancy footwork when the Voices West choir and Littleton-based Adventures in Dance combined forces on Saturday.

    When Dane Schley, 13, tells his friends he’s in a band, they often think he’s talking about his school’s jazz ensemble.

    But his band practices take place miles away from his classes at Deer Creek Middle School in a nondescript warehouse off Evans Avenue in Denver. And few middle school jazz bands begin their practices by playing a loud Black Sabbath medley with hair-flinging, head-banging gusto.
