Wright Opera House and Sherbino Theater Present Jazz Concert in Southwest Colorado!
Ouray County boasts a variety of exciting and fun events throughout the year, and this year is starting off with a bang!
The Wright Opera House, located in Ouray, has teamed up with the Sherbino Theater in Ridgway, Colorado, to bring the Jeff Solon Jazz Trio to Ouray County this April 13, 2014 at 7:30pm in Ridgway!
The Wright Opera House has worked to bring music to Ouray County for the past few years, parenting the Wrighteous Jazz Series, which brings musicians from all over to the historic venue in Southwest Colorado.
The Sherbino Theater has also made it their goal to share a love of the arts in an historic setting that virtually sings by itself.
As these two venues work ever harder to not only present performances that are memorable, they also work to continuously improve the buildings themselves, restoring them to the splendor they once were in the days of the railroad and mining prosperity in the west.
For the past couple of months, with work on the Wright Opera House in full swing, the two venues have joined forces to keep the music alive!
Based out of Durango, Colorado, a scenic drive over the Million Dollar Highway, Jeff Solon travels the west, sharing his talent and love of jazz wherever he lands!
He has performed on mountaintops and in concert halls - mesmerizing music lovers whether they are new to the genre, or jazz is their first love.
Regardless of personal preferences, talented artists such Jeff Solon and his associates seem to infect others with their own passion for the song, and the experience creates a memory not soon forgotten.
Jeff performs both as a solo artist and in groups based on the interests of the venue.
The performance at the Sherbino in April will feature Jeff Solon himself, complimented by renowned bass guitarist Elizabeth Riordan and classical pianist Jack Maynes.
Elizabeth Riordan has performed around the world. After a near fatal car accident, her passion for Jazz and the bass was increased tenfold, as demonstrated with her determination to not only overcome but to outdo herself as an artist. Since moving to Southwest Colorado, elizabeth has worked primarily with Jeff to create a sound and mood that emphasize their profound love of jazz.
Since he was a child, Jack Maynes has had a powerful love of music and the classical piano. After having completed his degree in 2011, Jack has travelled the Southwest, sharing his love of music in a variety of genres, always bringing his own special combination of sensitivity and passion to the music.
The first show in the upcoming series, the Jeff Solon Jazz Trio is the perfect appetizer to a summer of spectacular shows.
Let the staff at the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs help you to plan the perfect getaway and concert experience. Always avid supporters of the arts, we are genuinely excited to share this next season of musical expression with our guests.
See You Soon!
