KHEN, your community radio station, is powered by over 50 volunteers. Right now, all of those volunteers are cheering and applauding our members and local businesses, who have so generously supported our 2012 Spring On-Air drive and recent Overdrive campaigns.
Thanks to all of you, we reached our goal of raising $7,000. Members’ discount cards are being mailed and over two dozen local businesses stand ready to offer you special member treatment. It’s going to be a good summer!
Based in Denver, The Colorado Symphony performs at Boettcher Concert Hall.
KHEN is pleased to announce a multiyear collaboration with the Colorado Symphony to bring symphony performances to Salida. The first Salida series will feature a CS ensemble at the SteamPlant on November 8, February 7, and April 4. The full orchestra will appear at Riverside Park on June 30, 2013.
Each of these four visits will include opportunities for area students, including a daytime concert and educational activities. For all our listeners, a new KHEN radio program featuring CSO recordings will debut this fall. Series sponsorships and subscriptions will be available to individuals and businesses and include VIP seating as well as complimentary admission to the October 16th, 2012 kickoff 5:00 – 7:30 pm at the Steamplant. Let KHEN be your classical music connection!
