The 10th Mountain Division's exploits during WWII are well known, with a particularly strong connection to the Aspen area, where they trained. This Saturday night, October 25, at 6:30pm, the Wheeler Opera House will host a return engagement of "Climb to Glory," a film by Warren Miller, that celebrates the creation and legacy of this renowned division. The first presentation was sold out, so if you missed it last time, don't miss it this time around! Tickets at www.aspenshowtix.com.
Beloved local singer/songwriter Bobby Mason presents the Aspen Family Reunion tomorrow night, October 18, at 8pm at the Wheeler Opera House. Mason has made his home in Aspen since 1969 and is still rocking at 70. He plans to perform songs in his catalog from as far back as 1964 and will be backed by a seven-man band plus backup singers. The Aspen Times dubbed Mason "the de facto musical mayor of Aspen," so you can expect this will be a great show! Tickets and additional information at www.aspenshowtix.com.
