Telling Stories Feb. 20 and 21!

Telling Stories, a super-fun collection of FREE live music and essay readings, returns 7 p.m. Friday, Feb 20 in Boulder and Saturday, Feb. 21 in Denver. This month's installment is "Finding Our Religion," an exploration of spirituality through a collection of creative musical and written art.

Word on the street is that there will be essays about bathroom graffiti, the Midwest and the ghost of Cab Calloway. There will also be a host of electric guitars, marimbas, cellos, zarbs and clarinets.
Telling Stories features young classical musicians and writers, but the group aims to "leave the stuffy concert hall behind." Full disclosure: I'm a contributing writer for the event, and this event is far from stuffy. I followed a gorgeous and unconventional flute piece at the last event, I managed to drop the F-Bomb on stage as I read my essay.

If you're in the Boulder area, check out Telling Stories Friday at Old Main on the CU campus. For the Denver crowd, check out Telling Stories at 910 Art Gallery, 910 Santa Fe. Both events are FREE and start at 7 p.m.

  1. These sound like fun events and I like the idea of mixing all aspects of culture together to see what you can cook up!

  2. Sounds great. I'll try to get over to Old Main.

  3. How much fun is that! It sounds like a neat mix of genres.
