The concert featured a 300 voice choir, made up of high school students from Crowley (Ordway), Fountain, Lamar, Las Animas, Lake County (Leadville), La Junta and Rye.  The Pueblo Youth Symphony accompanied the performance.

  1. I must have played in that orchestra. I paid for the (very small, by modern standards) tuition at SCSC by playing in the Pueblo Symphony. They gave me a whopping $200 per semester.
