What: Glenwood Springs Community Concert Association presents Leon Williams

When: 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 12

Where: Mountain View Church, 2195 County Road 154, Glenwood Springs

Baritone soloist Leon Williams is slated to bring his performance to the Mountain View Church in Glenwood Springs, for a 7 p.m. concert on Feb. 12.

Classically trained at the Juilliard School, the Brooklyn native currently lives in Honolulu, where he assists in leading worship at the First Presbyterian Church of Honolulu.

“Williams will bring his charismatic personality, blending spirituals, Broadway, opera and songs from the ‘Great American Songbook,’” according to a Glenwood Springs Community Concert Association press release.

Before Williams takes the stage Tuesday night he will take part in an outreach program that afternoon, working with choir students at Glenwood Springs High School.

The concert is part of the concert association’s annual season. The association has been entertaining the Roaring Fork Valley with music for the last seven decades. Dating back to 1947, it began when community members decided they wanted to bring more culture to the rural areas through classical music.

Evolving over the years, the organization now offers five concerts for its paid member group starting in the fall and running through the spring every year.

Admission to the concert is by membership ticket only. Once members have been seated, the association will accept $20 donations from non-members who wish to attend, if there are seats available.

The concert series continues March 2, with rock/opera mash-up sensation the Jersey Tenors; and will conclude with America’s Got Talent finalists Sons of Serendip on May 4.

Next year’s membership drive will begin at the end of April 2019 and go through June.

The membership fee is $40. For more information, contact Darrell Mount at 303-646-7634.
