THE 1970's in Chaffee County Colorado

  *For more history of our area, check out the old newspaper pages.
1978 Six concerts were performed in the first season of
Salida-Aspen Concerts. The concerts were so well received that
performances were scheduled for the next year and have continued
annually ever since. The idea was born when a group of Salidans
contacted the world-famous Aspen Music Festival about bringing some of
the musicians to the Arkansas Valley. Over the years, Salida audiences
have heard emerging performers some of whom have become world famous
such as violinist Gil Shaham, harpist Nancy Allen and opera star
soprano Renee Fleming.
