Telluride, Colorado (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
Telluride, Colorado may be quiet this time of year, but the Sheridan Arts Foundation (SAF) staff is busy planning the much anticipated winter 2012-2013 lineup for the historic Sheridan Opera House. After playing host to a fantastic summer schedule of live music, events and films, the SAF is proud to announce the Opera House's first round of programming slated for the winter ski season.
Haven’t been to Telluride? The town was founded in 1858 after gold and silver were discovered, Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank here, Nikola Tesla selected the site to build the world’s first power plant, hippies re-settled these lands in the 60s, skiing arrived in the 70s, real estate agents invaded in the 80s, Tom Cruise, Oprah and Oliver Stone call it vacation, Tim McGraw wrote a song about it and coming up in December, the historic Sheridan Opera House (which celebrates its 100th birthday in July 2013) will kick off another exciting, event-packed season.
SAF's winter events schedule:
This year’s Holiday Concert Series will host an eclectic mix of music and it’s sure to be a successful fundraiser for the SAF, the non-profit that owns and operates the historic Sheridan Opera House. Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 9 for all Holiday Concert Series events.
The SAF prides itself in keeping its entertainment open to all ages, and teenagers and young adults are welcome to the Gala and all concerts at the Sheridan Opera House. “It’s a great opportunity for parents to visit Telluride and celebrate the New Year together with their families,” said SAF Event Director Ronnie Palamar.
Tickets for the Holiday Concert Series go on sale on Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 at noon, Colorado time. Tickets and additional event information are available at sheridanoperahouse.com or 970.728.6363 x5. Stay tuned for many more events coming in 2013!
