The second annual Create Beauty Design Conference, an open to the community event produced by Tree of Life Landscapes, will be held at the Longmont Museum and is headlined by a discussion with Diblik on the subject of “Intimacy by Design: Exploring the Relationship of Plants and People.”

“We could not be more pleased to have Roy bring his wealth of knowledge to the Create Beauty Conference in February,” said Johnny Moore, Tree of Life designer and conference director. “The conference this year will be a great community event – whether you are learning the basics of how to use plants in your backyard or you are a seasoned professional with years of design or installation experience; there will be something for everyone.”

The two days of festivities will kickoff at 7:00 p.m., February 22 with a screening of the film Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf at the Academy Boulder at 970 Aurora Ave., Boulder, CO.

The trailer for Five Seasons is available here.

The following day the conference will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Conference attendees will hear Diblik draw from four decades of experience growing perennials as he discusses the intimate relationships between plants, design, and people as well as discuss his own design process; from planting and mulching to maintaining sustainable growth. Diblik is known for work on at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Shed Aquarium and his partnership with Piet Oudolf. Diblik is the owner of Northwind Perennial Farm and author of The Know Maintenance Garden.

Pro Musica Colorado Chamber Orchestra presents Classical Evolution @ Stewart Auditorium - Longmont Museum

Classical Evolution with harpsichordist Jory Vinikour promises to be quite the concert with a world premiere of composer Max Wolpert’s piece, “Baroque in Mirror.”

Classical Evolution explores the evolution of classical music in this century, and the inspiration from previous eras and multiple cultures, with the use of an instrument choice from the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the harpsichord. World-renowned harpsichordist, Jory Vinikour, joins Pro Music Colorado Chamber Orchestra on this musical journey.

The concert opens with a World Premiere of composer Max Wolpert’s “Baroque in Mirror.”

“Max Wolpert’s new composition is a wonderful homage to the Baroque Era in general and the folk fiddlers of the time,” says Cynthia Katsarelis, Music Director and Conductor of Pro Music Colorado Chamber Orchestra. “The work starts with a well-crafted, Baroque-sounding fugue that bursts out into an exhilarating fiddle tune! The outer movements honor Scottish and Welsh fiddlers while the middle movement comes closer to home. It is based on the Jewish fiddle music of 18th century by Abraham Caceres.”

Wolpert says, “It was written in memory and mourning for the victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre, October 27, 2018. A portion of the music is labelled ‘Kaddish’ and quotes from that prayer. Music of our time, knitting together music of the past that speaks to the present.”

Also on the concert are J.S. Bach’s Harpsichord Concerto in D minor and Haydn’s Symphony No. 22, the Philosopher.

We hope you will join us for this musical adventure! Here are the details of the concert:

On the Ground: Contemporary Landscape Photography after Ansel Adams @ Longmont Museum

For two centuries, idealized visions of the American West have lured people in search of adventure, wealth, freedom, and inspiration. Ansel Adams expressed the region’s breathtaking vistas with such skill that his photographs command our respect and inspire our environmental sympathies nearly 100 years after he made them. Join the Longmont Museum for a lively conversation with contemporary landscape photographers as they attempt to square the idealism and grandeur of Adams’ vision with their own perceptions of today’s West.
