The Free Summer Concert Series takes place under the lights and on the dance floor at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts.

On Aug. 5, the Creede Repertory Theatre (CRT) Orchestra, led by music director Joe Montelione, will blow the roof off with its five-piece jazz ensemble featuring some of the finest young musicians from across the country.

This concert will feature a wide variety of old standards from the golden age of jazz, as well as newly arranged songs from musicals with a jazz twist. Catch these young instrumentalists before they’re famous and you have to wait in line at Carnegie Hall.

On Aug. 19, the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts will present the final concert of the summer series, Voyage à Paris. Opera soprano Margaret Ozaki and pianist Mallory Bernstein perform numbers on “Love and Life in the City of Lights,” featuring the works of Puccini, Poulenc, Porter and others. Thingamajig stars Boni McIntyre (Madame Thenardier and Mrs. Potts) and Perry Davis Harper (Jean Val Jean) will join Margaret onstage for several songs.

Folding chairs will be provided, but if you want a guaranteed seat, you may have to bring your own.

A cash bar and full meal concessions will be available for purchase. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a 7 p.m. start time.
