First Southwest bank is proud to sponsor Durango’s annual classical summer music festival, Music in the Mountains. The festival offers a wide variety of engaging entertainment from soloists to duo pieces to orchestra and symphony sets. With locations in Cortez, Bayfield, Durango, and Purgatory each venue showcases the beauty and sounds of the mountains.
This year First Southwest Bank received fifty tickets to attend the event. Ordinarily these tickets would be distributed to employees. However, this year the bank wanted to give back to the dedicated music students of Durango who they hoped would truly benefit from attending the festival.
The tickets were donated to the students of Stillwater Music. A local music education center that offers private lessons and in-school classes to the community of Durango. First Southwest Bank feels it is important for students of all ages to have the opportunity to attend local concerts, and witness talented musicians, who will hopefully inspire them to continue on their own musical journey.
Events like Music in the Mountains provide a unique opportunity for the community to learn something new, bond together, and enjoy the pleasures of southwest Colorado. First Southwest Bank and Music in the Mountains are happy to give back to the community of Durango and hope to encourage creative expression for years to come.
