Music in the mountains

Temperatures may signal the middle of summer, but some of Colorado’s finest summer festivals have just begun. The Music in the Mountains festival opens Thursday and runs through Aug. 4, featuring a wide variety of music at various indoor and outdoor venues around Durango. Well-known conductor and violinist Guillermo Figueroa will lead the festival orchestra, and a range of other groups and genres are also on the program. Limited tickets left for most shows.
