Faculty X, PBR and Brooks-I, oh my. These are just three of the outstanding groups and musicians that will be at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts on Thursday, March 27. Many local and regional musicians are graciously donating their time for this “Over the Rainbow” fundraiser event. Tickets are now on sale for this fun-filled evening that will benefit the Pagosa Springs Girls Choir (PSGC).

Linda Parker, director of the PSGC, said,

“Seeing all these musicians proves what I have always taught my students — that music is a lifelong skill. We never get too old to play an instrument, sing or just enjoy listening to music. Pagosa has a wealth of amazing musicians of all styles of music: classical, pop, bluegrass, folk and country.

“Most of the musicians in Pagosa have a career that is unrelated to music. Randall Davis, of Bluegrass Cadillac, is a dentist. Glenn Unrath, one of the San Juan Mountain Boys, spent his life designing fire protection systems for homes and businesses. Yet music is still so important and enjoyable to them, they have continued playing, singing and performing throughout their life.”

The Pagosa Springs Girls Choir is thrilled that so many musicians are on board to share their talent and their love of music on their behalf. This is indeed a rare opportunity for Pagosa to see all of these very talented musicians in one place.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. at the Center for the Arts. Attendees can purchase dinner for $7 (cash) once they arrive. Dinner will be served from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Also during this time, folks can bid on some fabulous items in a silent auction, but there’s no rush, because the auction will remain open until after intermission.

The Pagosa Springs Girls Choir will sing a short program before the musicians take the stage at 7 p.m. Concert tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and are available by calling the center or online at www.pagosacenter.org.
