Colorado playwrights say they are struggling to get their work produced by regional theater companies. CPR arts reporter Corey H. Jones examines how dramatists are creating their own opportunities and how theater organizations are serving the Colorado playwriting community.
CPR arts editor Chloe Veltman interviewed Peter Kageyama, author of the 2011 book “For the Love of Cities,” last week. Kageyama, who was in town to help launch Boulder’s new cultural plan, talked about what makes cities both livable -- and lovable.
The Colorado Symphony is trying to update the concert-going experience. The institution’s senior vice president, Anthony Pierce, talks to CPR about how the symphony is ditching the tuxedos, offering new programming and allowing alcohol into the concert hall to appeal to modern-day audiences.
CPR’s Stephanie Wolf and Irvin Coffee take a tour of the Colorado Ballet’s new building. Watch an exclusive video here.
Grammy Award-winning vocalist Dianne Reeves and the Bennie L. Williams Spiritual Voices choir honor the late civil rights leader Vincent Harding in a concert this weekend in Denver. As the choir singers and Reeves prepare for the tribute, they share a spiritual song with CPR.
