Mario Sauceda Art Exhibit at La Cour Art Bistro & Jazz Bar. Sauceda's exhibit will be up all of January. Born into a multi-racial family in 1960, and raised in Southwest Denver, Mario Sauceda’s creative force was manifested at an early age. Even as young as three or four, he exhibited a determination and an ability to concentrate that established a precedent for his later explorations into both art and architecture. His mother was an art teacher in Denver Public Schools, and his father was a civil rights attorney.

Please join Denver Arts & Venues for the 15th Annual Five Points Jazz Festival. 2017 brings you more stages, more bands and more fun than ever before. This free, family-friendly event takes place annually on the third Saturday in May and celebrates the history of Denver’s Five Points neighborhood.

Once known as the Harlem of the Rockies, Five Points was home to several jazz clubs which played host to many of jazz music’s legends such as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and many more.

The best-selling holiday musical for many years returns to the Arvada Center stage this winter! Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor ® Dreamcoat is an irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and a coat of many colors.

Opera Colorado presents La Bohème

Nov 6, 2017

Fall in and out of Love in Paris.

One of opera’s most beloved stories popular with well-seasoned opera fans and simply perfect for the first time opera-goer. Set in 19th century Paris, follow six impoverished artists and students as they struggle to make ends meet, fall in and out of love, and ultimately bond together to help each other in their most desperate hours. It sounds like the typical fresh out of college, starving artist lifestyle of the 21st Century. The timelessness of the story resonates just as deeply with contemporary audiences as it did at its premiere in 1896.
