Colorado Springs Jazz Ensemble

When: Mon., June 10, 7 p.m. 2013

10 Monday


As graduates of Manitou Springs High School, my mother and her friend loved getting us kids to taste the "water fountains" in Manitou. Over the years, each of us would try to quench our thirst with plain, sweet refreshment, only to find carbonated, mineral-laced fire water. I'm less inclined to prank the unwitting these days — everyone's so damn health-conscious, taste doesn't matter — so I search instead for another kind of tradition. Perhaps it could be catching free outdoor music in Soda Springs Park (1016 Manitou Ave., 685-5089). At 7 p.m. each Monday from now until Aug. 12, you'll find tunes from the Colorado Springs Jazz Ensemble, the Fountain Creek Brass Band or the Little London Winds. — Edie Adelstein
