CU Faculty Tuesdays: Passacaglie and Fantasie
Tuesday, September 4, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Grusin Music Hall
A weekly boon to classical music lovers, the University of Colorado's Faculty Tuesdays concert series has returned along with the beginning of the fall semester. Celebrate the swooning sounds of strings at Passacaglie and Fantasie, an evening that pays sonic homage to age-old compositions for the lute and guitar, ably interpreted by Ritter Family Classical Guitar Program Director Nicolò Spera. An intimate presentation of repertoire mainstays, Spera's performance bathes listeners in the sounds of the centuries. Admission is free, but space is limited, so organizers recommend arriving early. Visit the CU Presents events calendar for more details.
Wednesday, September 5, 8 to 11 p.m.
The Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Winery
Comedy nerds and oenophiles, unite: Meghan DePonceau's Uncorked! returns to the Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Winery with another delightful "comedy show for all palates." September's lineup includes a fresh blend of intriguing terroirs, from the sweet pear-like notes of JoAnn McIver, the honeyed headiness of Zach Welch and the earthy richness of Ryan Nowell, plus a surprise flight of fancy from a surprise drop-in comedian. Drink in a barrel full of belly laughs (as well as some of the city's finest wines) at a midweek feast for sommelier-approved senses and comedic sensibilities. Learn more on the Infinite Monkey Theorem's Facebook events page.
Thursday, September 6, 8 p.m.
Punching up a reliably crushable monthly comedy show with a healthy dose of altruism, Power Move deftly combines a presentation of top-notch local talent with an admirable fundraising objective. Support the kindhearted efforts of the Broken Shovels Farm and Animal Sanctuary while consuming a buffet of belly laughs along with draughts from Stem Ciders and Ratio Beerworks. September's lineup is an embarrassment of comedic riches, including local mirth merchants Kira MagCalen, Rion Evans, Caitie Hannan, Andrew Orvedahl and Al Jackson.
