MasterWorks Concert At Telluride's Palm Theatre November 17

The San Juan Symphony and the combined choruses of the Telluride Choral Society and the Durango Choral Society present a MasterWorks choral concert, “From The Old Country”, Saturday, November 14, 7 p.m., following a beer, wine and champagne reception (cash bar), at the Michael D. Palm Theatre. Included in the program are the beautiful albeit professionally daunting Brahms “Nänie, Op. 82,” and Mahler’s wildly dramatic “Forest Legend,” an early work by the inspired composer.
The phenomenon dubbed the “Cultural Cringe” by my former mentor/colleague the venerable art critic Robert Hughes loosely refers to the fact that locals tend not to think of artistic events in the same fine light as similar happenings created by artists in ordained venues such as New York, L.A., and major European capitals. When it comes down to culture, “locavore” is often a pejorative. After living just over 18 years in the Telluride region, I say “hogwash.” And Arthur Post is a case in point.
