Mayor Steve Bach will present the Spirit of the Springs Award to Susan Grace, senior lecturer, associate chair and artist-in-residence with the Colorado College Music Department on Monday at 10 a.m. in the lobby of Packard Hall on the CC campus, 5 W. Cache la Poudre St.

Grace, who was nominated for a 2005 Grammy Award for Best Small Ensemble Performance, is also music director of the Colorado College Summer Music Festival, currently celebrating its 30th anniversary.

The festival, an intensive three-week program for 49 advanced student musicians, draws young musicians and faculty members from across the country. Students at the festival participate in a concert series (including chamber music concerts), five orchestra performances (including a free children’s concert), and several off-campus outreach concerts throughout the region.
