I overdid it a bit with my submissions for the Go!’s available space for Arts and Entertainment news. I think this is good information- so here is what I sent originally (the Veronika String Quartet info was cut for now):
Colorado Springs audiences will finally get to hear the philharmonic’s music director Josep Caballé-Domenech conduct opera thanks to next February’s “Tosca” collaboration with the Opera Theatre of the Rockies. But there’s really no need to wait so long. Caballé-Domenech returns to the Aspen Music Festival, the site of numerous early-career triumphs, to conduct Bizet’s “Carmen” on August 10, 14 and 16 for the Aspen Opera Theatre (970-925-9042, www.aspenmusicfestival.com).
The Veronika String Quartet will add a fourth special program in March for its upcoming “Silver Jubilation” 25th anniversary concert series. Each concert includes music by Tchaikovsky as the quartet continues to perform Saturday nights in Pueblo at Ascension Episcopal Church followed by Sunday afternoons at the Colorado SpringsFineArtsCenter in October, January and May. The March “Celebration” concert will be held at Packard Hall (719-634-5583; www.veronikastringquartet.com).
After a season long search the Hausmusik String Quartet has found their new violinist. 28-year-old Pueblo, Colorado native Jacob Klock adds this new position to his current duties as concertmaster for the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs and his seat in the second violin section of the philharmonic. The organization is now accepting 2014-2015 season subscriptions for their unique dinner and concert evenings (www.coloradohausmusik.com).
