  • 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.

  • 'Into the Woods' offers a forest of fun

    Once upon a time, there was a talented group of 58 singers and dancers, a sprinkle of colorful costumes, and a large helping of Stephen Sondheim’s challenging score. This is the recipe for happily-ever-after when the Colorado Children’s Theatre presents “Into the Woods, Jr.,” opening on May 1.

  • Bra art exhibit supports double-threat fund-raiser

    “Psst…your bra strap is showing,” you whisper to your neighbor. Then you realize, that’s not an ordinary bra strap.

    You finally find the nerve to ask your friend why she has a black feather boa holding up her over-the-shoulder boulder holder. “Why, it’s to support my Purr-fect Pair,” she replies with a wink.
