The artists and groups in this inaugural season of the new series share the common thread of local flair, featuring CSU alumni in each concert.
“This series is an exciting way to feature local musicians and CSU alumni in an intimate setting,” said Kristin Karabensh, Director of Music Programs at Bohemian Foundation. “In furtherance of Bohemian Foundation’s music mission, we support this series as a means of increasing the amount of live contemporary music performances in Fort Collins and encouraging audience and community support of local musicians.”
Not only will the series highlight home-grown artists, it will also serve a valuable role in educating students in different music styles.
