The Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College is happy to announce the return of live and in-person concerts in downtown Durango’s Buckley Park. Community Concert Hall and Alpine Bank have teamed up once again to present the free “Concerts @ The Park” series beginning August 5 through September 16.
“We are excited to return to Buckley with a great line up of artists,” said Charles Leslie, Concert Hall director. “Beth from Alpine Bank and I enjoy the process as we search for ‘just the right’ musical guests to bring to our community. I would recommend that folks get your dancing shoes on and be ready to have a party in the park Thursday evenings with us at Buckley.”
The Concert Hall @ The Park schedule is set for Thursdays, 5:30 pm:
- August 5 – The Noms – Albuquerque - Fun-loving, foot-thumping rock blends blues, country, and soul with a dash of bluegrass and funk creates their unmistakable sound.
