Majesty of Mozart

Mark your calendars for the weekend of November 5-6, 2022 for The Majesty of Mozart. We are thrilled to collaborate with the Durango Choral Society, the Caliente Singers of Farmington, and the Fort Lewis College Chamber Choir for performances of Mozart's Requiem Mass, the great composer's final musical statement. Nothing compares to the sound of an enormous choir, full orchestra, and four renowned vocal soloists all joining forces in the presentation of this iconic masterpiece. Truly, this is a concert that must be heard to be believed.
Author Event & Book Signing: Ted Conover "Cheap Land Colorado"
6:00pm / Maria's Bookshop
From Ted:  "My new book about life off-grid in Colorado’s San Luis Valley comes out this fall, and I’m super excited about it. Cheap Land Colorado: Off-Gridders at America’s Edge describes the unusual people who choose to live on that beautiful, lonely prairie and my life among them—first as a volunteer for a group trying to prevent homelessness, and then as a neighbor, after I bought my own five acres.   Jessica Bruder, who wrote Nomadland, had this to say about Cheap Land Colorado:   Conover invites readers to ride shotgun along an unraveling edge of the American West, where sepia-toned myths about making a fresh start collide with modern modes of alienation, volatility and exile. Unflinchingly candid and eternally big-hearted, Conover brings the frontier and its denizens into focus without blurring any contradictions: splendor and brutality, freedom and deprivation, hospitality alongside a deep-seated unease.   The title, by the way, comes from the phrase some prairie people have used in order to search online for land they can afford."
