Sally Miner Lecture Series
August 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmfree
What do the Beatles have to do with Dadaism? How should you approach listening to atonal music? And, how has the twentieth century influenced composers today? All this and more as we survey the most complex century in music history! After this lecture, you’ll be better equipped to engage with the music of our time.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
