As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

Another of Palmer's amazing legacies to our community is our tree-lined city.  When he founded our city in 1871, it was a nearly treeless, arid plain. Palmer changed that by planting thousands of trees in our city. To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2021 and carry on Palmer’s vision of a tree-lined city, we are challenging the community to help plant 18,071 new trees over the next two years.

The evening will feature covers of Trans-Siberian Orchestra along with Spinphony's unique mashups of holiday & rock favorites. Check out their holiday albums 'Spinphony Greetings' and 'Music Box' on Spotify or Apple Music to preview what's in store for this fun holiday show!

Instrumental crossover string quartet “Spinphony” is breaking down barriers between classical, rock, and pop music. Mixing and mashing catchy melodies into unique arrangements such as “Bach in Black” and “Don’t Stop Beethoven”, Spinphony is more like a rock band than a string quartet with added choreography and beats. The four stunning ladies who often get mistaken for sisters, are winning over audiences with their creative and high energy performances nationwide.

The quartet is comprised of Brett Omara and Anna Morris on violin, Michaela Borth on 5 String, and Liz Gergel on cello. Combined, the ladies have been playing their instruments for over 100 years. They have performed shows worldwide and collaborated with 2 Cellos, Evanescense, Il Volo, Josh Groban and Michael Bublé to name a few.

Rocks are all around us, but very few of us can name the rocks we see! Come to the Rock Identification in the Wild series. We will learn the skills to identify different traits in rocks that geologists use to determine the rock type. The class will begin indoors in the Red Rocks Room so that we can learn the traits that we are looking for and how to measure them.

Then we will head out into Garden of the Gods and put our new knowledge to work identifying any rocks that we find! This week’s session will focus on basic rock identification. We will learn how to identify the most common rock types in the area.

For the walk portion of the class, be sure to bring water, a backpack, and a sweatshirt for the weather!

These young African American men and women are pursuing their dream of becoming pilots and aircraft technicians and are inspiring others to take to the skies and to change the racial imbalance in the world of aviation.

Prior to the 1940's, young African Americans who aspired to become pilots faced significant obstacles and even overt racism including the belief that African Americans could not learn to fly or to operate sophisticated aircraft. A small airstrip in Tuskegee, AL, changed all of that and prepared a generation of more than 1,000 courageous pilots and aircraft mechanics during WWII. The historic Tuskegee Airmen (nicknamed the “Red Tails” because of the distinctive design of their planes) became legends in the aviation history of World War II.

In the U.S. today, African Americans comprise 13.6 percent of the population. However, African American pilots and aviation mechanics still make up only a small fraction of professionals working in the aviation industry. Founded in 2015 by Lieutenant Colonel Rich Peace and Brigadier General Williams Sparrow, the Red Tail Scholarship Foundation is working hard to train a new generation of Tuskegee Aviators and inspire others to chase their dreams.

We recently finished our feature film Who Needs You after 2 years of hard work. We're in the process of film festival submissions and obtaining distribution, but before then, we wanted to premiere a private screening here in Colorado for anyone interested! Here's a brief logline of the movie.

When obsessive free spirit Stephen finds out his teen half sister Sarah is pregnant, he desperately tries to convince her to keep the baby. Sarah finally agrees when Stephen promises to father the child, and they embark on the journey of parenthood - for which neither of them are ready.

As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

Another of Palmer's amazing legacies to our community is our tree-lined city.  When he founded our city in 1871, it was a nearly treeless, arid plain. Palmer changed that by planting thousands of trees in our city. To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2021 and carry on Palmer’s vision of a tree-lined city, we are challenging the community to help plant 18,071 new trees over the next two years.

Spinphony returns to Stargazer's for a rock'in night of holiday & rock mashups. The evening will feature covers of Trans-Siberian Orchestra along with Spinphony's unique mashups of holiday & rock favorites. Check out their holiday albums 'Spinphony Greetings' and 'Music Box' on Spotify or Apple Music to preview what's in store for this fun holiday show!

Instrumental crossover string quartet “Spinphony” is breaking down barriers between classical, rock, and pop music. Mixing and mashing catchy melodies into unique arrangements such as “Bach in Black” and “Don’t Stop Beethoven”, Spinphony is more like a rock band than a string quartet with added choreography and beats. The four stunning ladies who often get mistaken for sisters, are winning over audiences with their creative and high energy performances nationwide.

The quartet is comprised of Brett Omara and Anna Morris on violin, Michaela Borth on 5 String, and Liz Gergel on cello. Combined, the ladies have been playing their instruments for over 100 years. They have performed shows worldwide and collaborated with 2 Cellos, Evanescense, Il Volo, Josh Groban and Michael Bublé to name a few.

Rocks are all around us, but very few of us can name the rocks we see! Come to the Rock Identification in the Wild series. We will learn the skills to identify different traits in rocks that geologists use to determine the rock type. The class will begin indoors in the Red Rocks Room so that we can learn the traits that we are looking for and how to measure them.

Then we will head out into Garden of the Gods and put our new knowledge to work identifying any rocks that we find! This week’s session will focus on basic rock identification. We will learn how to identify the most common rock types in the area.

For the walk portion of the class, be sure to bring water, a backpack, and a sweatshirt for the weather!

These young African American men and women are pursuing their dream of becoming pilots and aircraft technicians and are inspiring others to take to the skies and to change the racial imbalance in the world of aviation.

Prior to the 1940's, young African Americans who aspired to become pilots faced significant obstacles and even overt racism including the belief that African Americans could not learn to fly or to operate sophisticated aircraft. A small airstrip in Tuskegee, AL, changed all of that and prepared a generation of more than 1,000 courageous pilots and aircraft mechanics during WWII. The historic Tuskegee Airmen (nicknamed the “Red Tails” because of the distinctive design of their planes) became legends in the aviation history of World War II.

In the U.S. today, African Americans comprise 13.6 percent of the population. However, African American pilots and aviation mechanics still make up only a small fraction of professionals working in the aviation industry. Founded in 2015 by Lieutenant Colonel Rich Peace and Brigadier General Williams Sparrow, the Red Tail Scholarship Foundation is working hard to train a new generation of Tuskegee Aviators and inspire others to chase their dreams.
