Pack a picnic, enjoy a performance in the park

Sure, everybody knows that Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. But only the savviest music lovers know that he packed them for a picnic in the park to hear a peppy performance!

Pagosa Springs Town Park will once again be the location for a free performance for area residents and visitors next Wednesday, July 28, at noon.

This year’s presentation will be an alternative offering for Family Festivo. Everyone is invited to bring a picnic lunch to the park, sit down on your blanket or portable chairs, and enjoy this excellent musical offering being sponsored this year by Al and Marti Bledsoe.

Four professional brass players who hail from Texas and New Mexico will come together to present some popular tunes that people of all ages are sure to enjoy. The players include trombonist Byron Herrington of Albuquerque, N.M.; trombonist Christopher Oliver of Dallas, Texas; trombonist Rob Graham of Mesquite, Texas; and tubaist Richard White, also from Albuquerque.

Bottled water will be provided for the event at no charge. If you haven’t done so already, mark your calendars now for this pleasurable event suited for the whole family.

Music in the Mountains also has some tickets still available for their final concert of the season featuring world-class pianist and MitM favorite Aviram Reichert. Tickets are available at the Chamber of Commerce building on Hot Springs Boulevard, or by calling 264-2360.

This year, an added element of the Music in the Mountains concert season has been a 10-percent discount at various local restaurants with proof of your concert ticket purchase. Don’t miss out on this chance to enjoy some of the fine local fare in these establishments and turn the July 30 concert date into an extraordinary evening out.
