The group is open to survivors of cancer and those presently in treatment. Family members are welcome to walk as well. Wear walking shoes and warm, comfortable clothing. Varied distances for varied abilities. No charge.

The Symphony in the Valley, under the new artistic direction of conductor Carlos Elias, is seeking instrumentalists, especially strings, bassoon, clarinet, French horn, and tuba. Weekly rehearsals are held from 7-9 p.m. at the Glenwood Springs High School. The first rehearsal will be held Thursday, Oct. 30.

Regular participation in the Symphony of the Valley is a wonderful opportunity to play under the baton of a skilled conductor, violinist and teacher, and be a part of the year-round classical music scene of the Three Rivers region of Western Colorado.

Interested players may contact Carlos at or 970-314-8658.
