Mesa Verde National Park will host the National Park Service (NPS) Centennial Band on Sunday, September 18, 6:00 pm, in Morefield Amphitheater. The amphitheater is located in Morefield Campground, which is four miles into the park.
The NPS Centennial Band features Park Rangers Matt Hampsey, Jon Beebe, and Bud Holmes from New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park along with New Orleans musicians. Their music includes traditional New Orleans jazz and rhythm and blues, selections from the Great American Songbook, and original compositions written by Park Ranger Jeff Wolin, which highlight National Park Service sites, nature, culture, and history.
"We invite everyone to come out and listen to a very talented group of NPS employees," said Mesa Verde Superintendent Cliff Spencer. "It promises to be a great time."
Admission into the park will be free beginning at 4:30 pm on September 18, and admission to the concert will also be free.
