sequin resizeSILVER CITY, NM – The Mimbres Region Arts Council, in conjunction with premier sponsor Cissy McAndrew/United County Mimbres Realty, lodging sponsor Holiday Inn Express, and Gila Mimbres Community Radio, announces the third concert for the 2018-19 Indie Folk Series. Monica Rizzio takes the stage Saturday, March 30 at 7:30 pm at the Buckhorn Opera House, in the scenic mountain town of Pinos Altos- just a 10-minute drive from Silver City.

Texas-bred Monica Rizzio is emerging as one of the finest singer songwriters that call New England home. For over 10 years she played fiddle and sang with Tripping Lily, a folk acoustic pop band, who toured up and down the east coast. In 2012, Monica left the band to rejuvenate her passion for music and began writing to help cope with the loss of the band.

This duo of accordion and violin promises to be a surprising delight. Sergei was trained at the Academy of Music in Voronezh, Russia. He represented the U.S. at the 7th Roland International V-Accordion Festival in Rome where he received a special prize for the most online votes on the festival’s webcast. In addition to playing and collaborating with many internationally recognized artists of different genres, he composes and arranges, gives online accordion classes and master classes to school children of all ages. Natasha is a world-renowned violinist, singer, actress and dancer. Classically trained at the prestigious Gnessin Russian Academy of Music, she composes and arranges music in multiple styles. Both have won many regional and international competitions. Together they will perform works by Bach, Piazzolla, Tchaikovsky and more. Don’t miss these engaging and entertaining artists.

On March 22 & 23 the Gila Resources Information Project and the  Silver City Watershed Keepers will hold a two-day event for the internationally-celebrated World Water Day. On Friday, come to the Bayard Public Library between noon and 5:30 pm and learn about water issues around the world and in our own backyard through fun interactive games and activities. On Saturday from 9 am to noon, give back to our community and the Silver City watershed by picking up trash, planting natives and testing San Vicente Creek water quality in the Big Ditch.  

World Water Day has been held on March 22nd annually, since its inception in 1993. The event was initiated by the United Nations General Assembly due to a concern over increased demand for water access, allocation, and services at the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development. World Water Day strives to bring attention to the importance of freshwater and the advocacy for sustainable management of freshwater resources.

This is the 15th year for the Whitewater Mesa Fun Kite Flying Picnic which seems to get bigger and better every year.

Last year 161 people participated in this colorful, family-friendly event. There is plenty of space without fences so your kite strings won’t get tangled, and room to park for your tailgate picnic. 

In addition, for a completely different experience, walk one or all six of the labyrinths and a maze across the road at Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths.   For the second time, the event is sanctioned by the American Kitefliers Association so kitefliers come from al around the state and around the country.

Neo-Soul-Funk band, J-Calvin, recently released their debut album Heart Glow. The album showcases their unique soul-abducting fusion of authentic lyrics, jazz-influenced harmonies, and Dilla-Inspired beats. They are excited to bring their performance to the Silver City area!
