It may be quiet in town, but even in off-season there are fun things to do. If you're a lover of the witty music and lyrics of Cole Porter, you're in luck! Head down to the Basalt Public Library tomorrow, May 16, for a performance by well-known local soprano Cathy Markle and jazz pianist Tim Fox. They will present an hour of Porter favorites from 5:30-6:30 pm. The concert is free and takes place in the library's conference room.
On Monday, May 13, the Aspen Chamber Resort Association and the Aspen Institute will host an important conversation on immigration.

The forum is free and open to the public, and takes place from 8:30am - 12:30 at the St. Regis Aspen Resort. To RSVP, call 925-1940 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
