Live in the Past

Submitted by Morgan Tilton on Fri, 04/12/2013 - 2:22pm

Master your survival skills on Colorado’s southeastern plains. For history buffs 18 years and up, take up the daily tasks at this reconstructed 1840s adobe fur trading post adjunct to the Santa Fe Trail. Get the fort’s historical rundown, then load-up the wagons and setup camp in the cotton groves. At sunrise, caravan to the fort and discover the life of a hunter-trapper catching beavers in the Arkansas River or a domestic-hand churning the butter. Also interact with blacksmiths, laborers, traders, and soldiers.

Andrea Bocelli

Andrea Bocelli should have his own genre. The multilingual Italian tenor's distinct brand of international classical-pop music has made him one of the top-selling classical artists of all time. His newest release, Passione, ascended to number two on the Billboard 200 in January. The Colorado Symphony and other guests will complement the singer’s stunning voice. Wed 7:30 p.m.

Sting

Submitted by Jake Jensen on Fri, 04/12/2013 - 11:08am

Sting is a music legend with 16 Grammy Awards (both for his solo work and with the Police), a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and even the exalted designation of Commander of the British Empire, given by Queen Elizabeth II herself. But to commemorate a quarter-century of solo success, he’s stripping his pop-rock sound down to the essentials. On the Back to Bass tour, Sting revisits his familiar hits with just a five-member backup band for support. Wed 8 p.m.
