Local Voices for Local News
Wednesday, October 16, 6 - 8 pm
In Longmont and across Colorado, a movement is afoot to chart a new path for local journalism. Having witnessed newsrooms shrink and shut down, many reporters, entrepreneurs, residents, and philanthropists are leading efforts to re-imagine what local news can look like, and how they can serve the state’s diverse communities. But no one knows what sort of news and information communities need better than community members themselves.
That’s why the Colorado Media Project and Free Press want to hear from you. You’ll have the chance to share your ideas about the future of news and meet others creating solutions to fill local reporting gaps. You’ll hear from community leaders who are building innovative models for local journalism in Longmont and Boulder, and learn about new research by the Colorado Media Project on the state of media in Colorado.
Longmont Symphony Orchestra: La Commedia Dell'arte
Saturday, October 19, 7 pm and Sunday, October 20, 4 pm
Longmont Symphony’s Chamber Orchestra performs Mozart’s overture to Le Nozze di Figaro and Stravinsky’s Pulcinella, featuring soprano Christie Conover. “Pulcinella is based upon 17th-century Italian Renaissance music and comic theater personalities that helped usher in a fun new style of classicism,” said music director Elliot Moore.
