Come hear the expert musician/scholars of the Rocky Mountain region’s only professional period-instrument orchestra play the music of Corelli, Bach, Handel and others as it was intended to be heard. The concert “Passion. Period.” is for all ages and will feature lively demonstrations of period instruments.
This is a free concert sponsored by the patrons of the Littleton UMC Fine Arts Series.

The Denver Zoo at twilight was the one-of-a-kind backdrop for the Zoo’s inaugural A Force of Nature Gala on September 12. A smashing success, 500 friends of the Zoo honored longtime supporters Eddie and Susan Robinson for their decades of support and leadership. The keynote address belonged to famed National Geographic photographer and Photo Ark founder, Joel Sartore. Sartore gave both a funny and sobering talk about the need to act now before entire species of wild animals become extinct.
As a memorable sunset serenaded guests, the evening began with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres served at Harmony Hill, the Zoo’s new bear habitat, and continued with a KM Concessions dinner (beet salad and braised Colorado beef short rib). Zoo-themed sweets from Gateaux concluded the evening in a festively decorated tent.
A Force of Nature Gala, raised over $500,000 and allowed Denver Zoo to share the important work they do every day on campus and around the world, including local and global protection of wild animals and wild places. Gala support ensures exceptional animal care for over 3,500 animal residents, awe-inspiring experiences for more than 2 million visitors annually, and brings award-winning science education programs to more than 225,000 students. Denver Zoo leads the pack with sustainability and environmental programs as well, with a goal to be completely zero waste by 2025.
Denver Zoo plans to continue their new Gala tradition into 2020, promising donors and guests a poignant program focused on the world’s need for continued conservation action. To donate to Denver Zoo please visit https://www.denverzoo.org/support/ or text ‘Zoo’ to 41444.

Weekend-Long Cultural Celebration Commemorates the Bent’s Fort Era With Authentic Rendezvous Encampments, Hands-On Activities and Award-Winning Artists.
Tesoro Cultural Center will host its annual 1840 Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market weekend on Saturday, Sept. 14, and Sunday, Sept. 15, on the grounds of Colorado’s iconic restaurant, The Fort. Open to the public, the event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Admission is $5, and free for children ages 12 and under, and tickets can be purchased online at TesoroCulturalCenter.org.
Each year, Tesoro Cultural
Center commemorates Far Western Mountaineers and the Fur Trade, including trappers, traders, American Indians, Hispanics, teamsters and military of the Bent’s Old Fort era (1833-1849). Bent’s Fort, of which The Fort is an exact replica, was an important fur trading fort that operated along the Santa Fe Trail in the early 19th century.
A day at the 1840 Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market is a day in the early West, offering engaging and immersive fun for the whole family. Historic interpreters will show guests day-to-day skills from the 1840s, such as horse and mule packing; fire-starting; beadwork; sign language; blacksmithing; moccasin-making; arrow-making; wool processing; and more. Guests will be able to put these newly found skills to the test, under the guidance of bonafide Mountain Men and Frontier Women. Additional activities include handling demonstrations with a Bald Eagle and other birds of prey, courtesy of Hawkquest; storytelling; live music and performances by Rex Rideout and The Southwest Musicians; and a Rendezvous Scavenger Hunt for kids.
Spanish Colonial Artists
The 1840 Rendezvous weekend will feature award-winning artists, each displaying artwork in various art mediums. Accomplished artists include: Roxanne Shaw Galindo, Frank L. Garcia and Margarito Mondragon.
The 1840 Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market weekend festivities will kick off on Friday, September 13, with a Tesoro Member-exclusive “Meet the Artists Patron Party,” from 6-9 p.m. at The Fort. Guests will have the first opportunity to purchase award-winning art and the evening will feature live music provided by Spurs of the Moment. Hearty hors d’oeuvres, courtesy of The Fort, will be provided alongside a cash bar. Membership and $20 tickets to the “Meet the Artists Patron Party” can be purchased here.
All programming supports Tesoro’s year-round mission of protecting and making available to the community the artistic treasures of our American past.
