In other news, we are delighted to report that Rocky Mountain Highway has been accepted into the Give! Class of 2017, our third consecutive year of participation.

The Give! Campaign officially kicks off on November 1 but we are now actively seeking matching grants to help us launchan important year of fundraising in anticipation of the 10th anniversary of the MeadowGrass Music Festival coming up next May.

And finally, two other newsworthy items in the local arts community.  The Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region will be unveiling celebrating the results of the Arts and Economic Prosperity (AEP) Study at a free “Coffee with COPPeR” taking place on Wednesday, July 12 beginning at 8 am at the Kathryn Mohrman Theatre in Armstrong Hall on the Colorado College campus. Rocky Mountain Highway Executive Director Steve Harris served on the Steering Committee for the Colorado Springs piece of the AEP Study, which found that the arts generate over $150 million in annual economic activity in the Pikes Peak region alone!

And lastly, the Colorado Springs Creative Collective is seeking public input on a potential new mixed-use project for the arts community via the Arts Market Survey. The project aims to create affordable live/work and commercial space for artists and creatives in downtown Colorado Springs.  Artists and creatives of all types are invited to lend their voices to the design of this art property by taking the Survey. The survey will be available through Sunday, July 9, 2017 and takes about 15 minutes – you can find it here:

As always – thanks for reading and doing your part to keep music LIVE in Colorado Springs!
