Live Music Fans,
In over a thousand Friday nights, we have presented just about every genre of music there is in the wide world. We have enjoyed amazing dancers from Ghana, fantastic tabla players from India as well as the gorgeous guitar playing of Pierre Bensusan from France. One of my all time favorite sounding genres has been classical. Hearing wonderful string music in a high ceiling, ancient room like we have is really hard to beat. Tune in and see what I mean. Surely not as sweet as hearing it live but the streams have been very high quality audio and video and the shows have looked great thanks to Jeremy at Grassroots TV and Ralph mixing the audio.
We have started planning our Second Sunday free concerts in Sopris Park for July, August and September. That will be so nice to bring in some more fantastic acts to enjoy in the Park again. And, we are planning to book some music acts for the 4th of July in the Park, as well. So, I am cautiously optimistic we will be able to safely bring back live audiences to the shop and outdoor spaces in Town. It’s full on Spring again and you know that Hope Springs Eternal. Got to have hope, right? Let’s all say a prayer to the Muse and plan for the best. Why not? Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy and support another sweet Streamin’ Steve’s Show.
FRIDAY NIGHT – APRIL 16TH – THE SOPRIS QUARTET – 7:30PM – www.grassrootstv.org
“The Sopris Quartet is comprised of Artist Year Americorps Fellows currently serving as Music Teaching Artists in the Roaring Fork Valley School District and in the Aspen Music Festival and Schoolâ��s Afterworks Beginning Strings program. Emily Acri and Delaney Meyers (violin), Julia Foran (viola), and Jeanette Adams (double bass) are all recent graduates from music schools across the country and are honored to be able to work together in musical service for this school year.

Here are a few more words about the quartet that I found about one of their other shows. Expect some beautiful classical music on this live stream. Enjoy!
“The Sopris Quartet is a newly formed string ensemble comprised of Artist Year Americorps fellows living and working together as teaching artists in the Roaring Fork Valley. We are excited to present a fun program featuring Haydnâ��s String Quartet Op. 9 No. 4 and Nordic Folk selections arranged by the Danish String Quartet.”
Stay positive and continue to test negative. That continues to be my goal.
Steve, Mary Margaret and Shannon
