In brief: Tasty tacos, volunteer for the arts, free classical music listening
Sounds of the valley
Listen to recent Aspen Music Festival and School without spending a cent, thanks to American Public Media’s YourClassical web stream. Performances are from the 2015 and 2016 seasons and include Beethoven’s First Violin Sonata (Shai Wosner, Jennifer Koh), Barber’s Adagio for Strings (Takács Quartet), Brahms’ Concerto for Violin and Cello in A minor (Aspen Festival Orchestra, Tomáš Netopil, Noah Bendix-Balgley and Alisa Weilerstein), Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé Suite (Aspen Conducting Academy Orchestra, David Coucheron), among others. The stream, which launched this week, is available at yourclassical.org/listen/aspen and will remain live through Dec. 15. AMFS’ summer season kicks off June 29. See a complete schedule at aspenmusicfestival.com.
It’s taco time
Did you know Slope & Hatch offers some of the nation’s top-ranked tacos? That’s according to Yelp users, as Business Insider reported in a May story. The Glenwood Springs restaurant ranked ninth in a roundup of the top 50 taco restaurants. Taste ‘em for yourself at 208 Seventh St.
VOLUNTEER FOR ART
It takes more than 300 people to ensure Carbondale’s Mountain Fair runs smoothly, and you could be one of them. The annual event is now signing up volunteers for this year’s event, which runs July 28-30. If you volunteer more than four hours, you’ll receive a free volunteer T-shirt.
