Classical, kayaking, and clubbing

The Jefferson Symphony will perform their final concert of the season this afternoon at 3, in the Green Center on the School of Mines campus. The Jefferson Symphony Orchestra and the Evergreen Chorale combine talents to bring to life the magnificent Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem (a German Requiem). As one of Brahms most notable works, this beautiful composition seeks to comfort the living and those who must deal with and accept death. Our guest soloists will be Kara Guggenmos, lyric soprano, and Steve Taylor, bass baritone. Also on the program is Debussy’s Nocturnes inspired by three impressionist paintings by Whistler. Tickets Adult $25, Senior (62+) $20, Student (11-21yrs old) $10, Child (10yrs old and under) $5 For information and tickets, visit or call 303-278-4237.

This is the final day for this year’s Golden Games.  They’ll have a fly fishing contest from 8-4, slack line clinics & demos from 11-2, slalom kayak races from 12-3, stand-up paddling from 3-4, and a boater cross from 4-5.  Find the details on their website!

Golden has an active service club culture.  The Golden Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, and Optimist clubs are all great contributors to the quality of life we enjoy here.  If you’re interested in joining a club, but concerned about the time commitment, this might be of interest:  Golden Rotary is launching a new “satellite club,” aimed at busy professionals who hesitate to commit to weekly meetings.  This group plans to meet every other week and do some of their meetings through conference calls.  Their first service project is working at the Library’s Spring Whale of a Used Book Sale.  This group will meet tomorrow (Monday) from 5:30-6:30 in the community room at Natural Grocers (2401 Ford St – Map).  For more information about the new Rotary Satellite Club, contact Tyler Freeman at 303-278-4747 X 114 or 720-454-2830.
