Main Stage

Experience the music of Cole Porter in a tribute like no other! A staple of the Denver jazz scene in years past, drummer Dez Rubano returns, along with an all-star band. Porter’s lyrics were cleverly artistic; Rubano will first perform them as poetry, and then we’ll hear the beauty of the music and lyrics together with the full band and vocalists. Comic/conductor Pete Barbutti makes a special appearance to join in the fun. 

Arts in the Afternoon is a monthly hour-long program that usually takes place once a month on a Wednesday afternoon at 1:30pm. The series features some of the finest classical, jazz, opera, and other musicians from the metro Denver area. Each show includes a significant educational component, with the professional musicians or their narrators sharing historical and artistic insights about the music they play. During our in-person performances, you can enjoy complimentary refreshments and conversation with artists after each performance.
