Locals Concerts to showcase area talent

Spring is in the air and so is music. Salida Aspen Concerts has announced two dates for their popular Locals Concert, which quickly sold out last year. Performances will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Saturday, April 1, and from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Sunday, April 2.

The venue for both shows will be at A Church, 419 D Street in Salida.

The Locals Concerts will feature a variety of classical and jazz pieces performed by accomplished area musicians, including YuFen Chou, Mary Sandell, Don Grusin, David Reis, Justice Wise, Andre Wilkins, and Katie Oglesby. Works by Bach, Strauss, Holst and other composers as well as jazz greats will be part of the program.

Beer, wine and light refreshments will be served for a donation (before and after each show) as well as during intermission. A limited number of tickets is available online at

For more than 40 years, Salida Concerts and the Aspen Music Festival have made a wide range of skilled musical experiences accessible to people of the Arkansas River Valley. The nonprofit organization’s critically acclaimed summer series of concerts begins on July 8th and runs every Saturday for six weeks.
