Ute Pass Symphony Guild
Since 1985, the Ute Pass Symphony
Guild been bringing the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Orchestra to Woodland
Park for its July 5 "Symphony Above the Clouds" concert, now
located behind the middle school at Rampart Range and Kelley's Road.
Ten thousand people attend this free patriotic under-the-stars event, which concludes
with city-sponsored fireworks and Ft. Carson cannon accompanying Tchaikovsky's "1812
Overture." Parking accommodations for handicapped persons are provided.
For several years, the Guild has also transported every fourth grader in Teller
County and Lake George to one youth concert per year. Readers have only to study
appreciation letters from these children to discover the impact fine music has
on their young minds.
Although it costs approximately $20,000 to bring the orchestra to Woodland Park,
the all-volunteer Guild depends solely on individual and small business donors.
Persons interested in helping the Guild or even contributing to this
most popular of all county events should contact Nancy Spradling at 687-1304 or firstname.lastname@example.org
. The Guild address is PO Box 4097, Woodland Park, CO 80866.
